Say no more, we have designed the perfect solution for you: from now on, you will be able to play a commented deal before discovering the expert’s analysis. Nothing beats practice.

The biggest deal library ever built

Join us and discover a library of commented deals like you’ve never seen before! At the time of writing, nearly 250 commented deals are already awaiting you and more than 500 others are being integrated by our bridge experts.

    • Hi Paul, I see that your iOS app has not yet been updated to the latest version, which is why you are not seeing the commented deals. Try to open the app store and manually update your app to test this new mode as soon as possible!

  1. Hey, I have two questions. I have premium programme valid thru July of 2023 (one year more). If I want to use comment deals I have to pay full price for Premium plus – but most of functions are the same or similar. Do you prepare some offer for players who like your app and have premium programme bought for long time, or this money are lost? 2nd matter – I bought commented tournaments and they disapeared – are there also lost money or you have some proposal according to not used commented tournaments? Greetings, IR.

    • Hello Igor, we have an ongoing discount on Premium+ plans, to celebrate the launch and thank our long-time players. In any case, with or without a discount, you should know that the money you spent on a Premium subscription is never lost: when you upgrade from Premium to Premium+ we calculate a prorata based on your remaining subscription time. For your second question, the commented tournaments have indeed been removed in favor of the new commented deals, much more interesting in our opinion. Players who still had a stock of commented tournaments purchased were offered diamonds to compensate for this disappearance.

  2. Now. In our exclusive tournament we can’t see the names of the players on each hand and what they bid and made. This pretty well takes the Fun out of Funbridge because the message board was used to kibbutz with everyone about their result on each hand.

    • Hi Judy, this is strange, exclusive tournaments haven’t change in a long time. The message board is still there, you can access it from any “end of deal” screen. Maybe you can contact our customer service to sort this out? This will allow you to discuss with our team and maybe send a screenshot to explain the matter. Thanks!

    • Hi Tom, I see you’re indeed an annual Premium user, you subscribed through our website shop. Actually if you decide to upgrade to Premium+ right now using our website shop (https://funbridge.com/store) you won’t pay anything until your next subscription renewal. Your remaining Premium subscription will be converted into Premium+ and your next renewal date will be automatically adjusted. Please note that there is a discount applied to Premium+ subscriptions at the moment so it may be the best time to give it a try.

  3. I have tried to renew my subscription since April l was not able to renew with my new credit card so l was not able to play unless I renewed by banking on line. Why have you done this? Why can’t I pay with my new credit card? I don’t use banking on line why are trying to force me ? Emily5

    • Hello, it appears you have put your subscription on your second account, with the nickname McKool instead of Finn McKool. So I recommend using this one to play with all your advantages. This account is linked to your Gmail address if you want to reinitialize the password if you don’t remember it.
      If you need help with that, don’t hesitate to reach customer support here: https://funbridge.zendesk.com/hc/fr/requests/new
