EBU Games on BBO

The EBU run online games every day on Bridge Base Online.

There are five 12-board games on BBO every day, all of which give master points and are processed for the NGS. The "Fast Game at High Noon" is played at 5 minutes a board for those who like to play faster than our usual games (NB this will start at 12.45pm during the week commencing 27th April).

The remaining games are played at a gentler 7 minutes a board and start at 2pm, 3:30pm, 7:30pm and 9pm - they will cost $1.50 per player.

There is more information on the EBU website (click here).


BBO offers an ideal place for you to meet up with three other players, play bridge and chat. To set up a table after you login, choose the option for "Casual"  and then "Start a Table" and this gives you an options box at the bottom of which is the important ability for you to reserve the seats at this new table. Fill in each of the relevant seats with the names of your friends (BBO names) before you create the table, and they will be invited to join you as soon as they log in. After that you are in business. If you need any more help, consult one of the BUDDIES listed above. After you start you can use the chat facility BBO offers, or set up a video conference to run alongside using Zoom or Google Hangouts.
