Your year on BBO

Thank you for helping make the BBO bridge community so strong. You’re the most important piece of the BBO bridge playing puzzle. For that we salute and thank you. You’re the reason we’re not just another bridge app.

You’re one of over 850 thousand players who logged in to play in 2021. Together you’ve challenged others to play over 33 million boards; 11 million boards with star players, 10 million with your friends, and 9 million with a robot. Robots are popular, but you're still keener to play bridge with each other.

Together you played over 100 million competitive boards and 115 million casual boards. You’ve also played over 11 million free tables in total.

If you’ve ever tried the anonymous solitaire games on our website, you’ll be intrigued to know that some 726 million boards have been played there, so far in 2021!

Given your dedication and loyalty, we’re determined to make BBO as good as it can be for you. We love bridge and hopefully our passion for the game is clear for you to see. We’re committed to continually improve your online bridge experience.

Here’s wishing you a happy new year and all the best for the holiday season and beyond.

The BBO Team

  1. With you I have to agree all these advanced people what is that intimidation I guess because half of them aren’t way to go expressing yourself

  2. Thanks of BBO I passed the last months more agreeable and enjoyable. I could play bridge very relaxed. All the best for you.

  4. Merci BBO de nous avoir donné la possibilité de faire ces tournois toujours agréables avec des partenaires réguliers très sympathiques. Ce jeu de bridge m'a permis de passer ces deux années de pandémie agréablement grâce à BBO

  5. Thank you BBO for the opportunity to play with friends, some in other States, and new players from all over the world. You have been a God Send during the last 19 months!!

  6. Merci à bbo qui nous donne la possibilité de faire connaissance de bons joueurs en ces temps difficiles et délicats, on passera sous silence les quelques joueurs au très mauvais caractère et sans éducation bonnes fêtes à toute l équipe

  7. hello, Merci BBO j'adore jouer sur votre site; Grâce à vos tournois je progresse, et si je joue à une table , je rencontre souvent les memes personnes qui sont devenues des partenaires de jeu ou des relations amicaux,
    Je vous remercie , je vous souhaites a tous Bonnes Fêtes

  9. Happy Christmas to all at BBO. Delighted to be able play bridge all through these weird times- thanks and keep going!

  10. Love BBO - just wish there won't so many who called themselves "Advanced" or worse "World Expert" when they are average players. I find some people so rude, but on the whole most are pleasant. A partner once said: You are worse that the faeces (my word, not theirs) on the market place floor - and I had done NOTHING wrong!

  11. You have saved me from committing murder / suicide as I am stuck at home looking after husband with dementia and no external contact .

  12. Le bridge est ma passion BBO contribue largement à l'assouvir et ce depuis de nombreuses années, merci BBO je m'ennuie jamais grâce à votre site.. Happy NEW YEARS!!
    et.. longue vie à BBO.!H


  14. Thank you for your lovely message, it was very heartwarming and I am grateful to you. It is a privilege to be able to play Bridge online especially in these times. A big Thank-You to all the Staff at BBO from the bottom of my heart.

  15. Reading all these messages of good will makes you realise what a truly magnificent job BBO has done in bringing relief and happiness to so many people. A Queens award would be a fitting tribute.
    Thank you BBO, keep up the good work.


  16. Zdzisław : dobrze by było, gdyby można było wrócić do niektórych graczy, z którymi przypadkowy los zetknął w grze w brydża BBO.

  17. What would have to be done if we hadn´t BBO? Someone would have to invent it.
    Thanks for making our hobby much more pleasant in these "unpersonal" times.

  18. BBO definitely was a gift during Covid. Could not have survived without it. Still play once a week - I live in Texas and partner lives in New York. Thank you BBO!

  19. Thanks for getting me through 2021. Learned a lot of bridge, and kept me connected with friends. Hope 2022 will bring us all back together both in person and online! Cheers!

  20. BBO was a highlight for so many of us during 2021. I had never even heard of it before. Now I prefer it to bridge in person. Thanks to all who worked hard to make it available to so many. Please stay healthy and keep playing bridge !! U

  21. I'm immensely indebted to BBO, for helping me enjoy my time at home during the horribly tragic days of the pandemic.

  22. Yes, re. diversion during the pandemic. Yes, re. “forcing” us to improve our play/update our conventions and presenting “conversations” on tougher hands with our partners in resulting post-mortems. Yes, re. the plethora of options available on BBO…but also a big shout-out for helping Bridge Clubs around the world to remain in touch/survive! Many whatsapp groups kept friendships and personal Bridge Clubs in touch. Anyone I know who loves Bridge is now on BBO — what’s not to love?

  23. I love BBO and have been with BBO for 18 years. Would never dream of leaving BBO. Thank you and Merry Christmas and a Prosperous Nw Year 2022
