Bridge Base Online Instructions

  1. Once you get there you need to set up a BridgeBase user ID.  In your profile be sure to put your real name and ACBL (7-digit) number.  Your 5-digit IBC number will not work.
  2. You need to buy some BB$ - in the upper right corner click on the button that says BB$.  You can use a credit card or a pay-pal account.  Don't buy a lot at once since they are not refundable.
  3. On the "Home" screen select "Competitive"
  4. Next click on ACBL Virtual Clubs
  5. Click the "Pending" tab
  6. Games don't appear in the list until two hours before the start time.
  7. Look for a line that starts with Indpls BC and the start time and "Open" or a masterpoint limit.  Click on it to register for the game.
  8. Fill in your partner's BBO user id.  You can't register without a partner.  Your partner must be online when your register.  They will recieve an invitation which they must accept to complete the registration.
  9. Be sure you and your partner are logged in to BridgeBase at least 5 minutes before game time.  The game will start promptly at the scheduled time.  Late arrivals will be cancelled.
  10. When the director starts the game your first hand will appear.
  11. Have fun.

We are in the process of writing instructions for playing in our online club games.  We will add links here as each one is ready.
