Are you wondering about all the pretty purple badges in players’ profiles, and the new BBO Prime menu? Here’s what this is all about:
What is BBO Prime?
BBO Prime is a monthly subscription of $5.99/month offering
- access to a private bridge club only for nice, friendly people,
- free unlimited advanced robots in the Prime Bridge Club
- A monthly tournament (on the 28th of each month) hosted by Aurora with prepared hands
- A weekly dedicated daylong (every saturday)
- daily and weekly bridge articles, and…
- now digital version of BeBRIDGE magazine every two months
BBO Prime comes with its own new private club: the BBO Prime Club is a pleasant place to play social and casual bridge with nice people.
The Exclusive Bridge Articles menu offers articles about bridge history, anecdotes, hand analysis and the latest happenings in the world of bridge.
And finally, the badge! BBO Prime members will have a pretty purple badge in profile. It looks like this:
Why do so many people have the Prime badge already?
To launch the new BBO Prime Club, all nice, friendly, long time BBOers received free access to the BBO Prime Club, and the badge in profile for a limited period of time. They are not paying for access, this was a gift from BBO to its friendliest, most popular community members.
I am nice too but I did not receive the badge. Why?
Only players who were marked as friends by many other BBOers received the badge. And by “many” we mean “many many many” — only top 25% most popular BBOers got it. So if you’re not very expansive, you don’t play very often, or the games you are playing are not very social (robots, solitaire, Express) that’s OK, it doesn’t mean BBO thinks you’re not a nice, friendly person. It just means our heartless, cold server did not know enough about you to measure your “friendliness”.
