Where are the messages shown (in relation to your board) that come and go and do not need you to press a 'Continue' button? For example, a player may ask the caller to repeat the last number read out, or a player may say she almost has a 'house'. Putting the messages 'Above your board' can make your board (and what is below) move up and down more which can be annoying

Reverse boards?:
Your table
Yes
No
In real life, the boards of players sitting across the table from you face away from you. If you have lots of boards visible (not just the boards of players at your table) then set this option to 'Yes' to make the boards face away from you. This reversing of boards only works on newer browsers
If the board of a player sitting at your table is highlighted (e.g. when they shout '#') then does their board face you when normally their board faces away from you? This means you can see clearly the numbers on their board. For this to work, the 'Highlight board, squares &numbers' option in the 'Extra Effects' section of these setting must be on. The reversing of boards only works on newer browsers
If a player leaves who is sitting at your table then is her chair left empty or does the board of another player come into view? This only applies when the above 'Reverse boards?' option is set to 'Your table'. The reversing of boards only works on newer browsers
How much do players chat:
No
Low
Medium
High
Players talk to the caller and other players in over 15 different ways. These include a player asking the caller to confirm the last number read out, saying that she nearly have a 'house', and telling a neighbour that she has the last number read out. If this option is set to 'No' then players will not make mistakes
How often do players leave & join:
No
Low
Medium
High
Players can leave and join between and during games. Players can also rejoin between games. If this option and the option 'How much do players chat?' are set to 'No' then every player has the same chance of winning
The program will mark your squares and shout when you have a 'line' or a 'house'. The program does not make mistakes when playing for you. The game is played quickly with about half a second between the caller reading out numbers
Automatically start another game at the end of a game. Press 'End' to stop. Press 'Setup' to set other options to play games quickly, with less screen updates, with no chatting and with no animations. Press 'Setup' to configure the game to quickly gather statistics. One statistic is how many numbers it takes to get a
Hide the 'Line', 'House', 'Pause' and 'Update' buttons that are normally shown during a game. This option only takes effect when the computer plays for you, marking your numbers and calling 'line' or 'house' for you. If the computer plays for you then these buttons are usually disabled or greyed out. This option can be used when gathering statistics, so that just the 'End' button is visible. One statistic is the average number of balls read out before a player has a
If you save the settings then if your reload or refresh the game then the game will be set up like when you saved your settings
Do you hear the numbers being read out and the caller checking calls of 'house'? You need the sound files for this. This may not work. Please extract the sound files into a folder named 'bbsound' next to the game
Do you hear the players talking to each other and asking the caller questions? This chatting may make it difficult to concentrate on the numbers being called out. You need the sound files for this
Pause after each word when printing what the players and the caller say, rather than printing a whole sentence at once. The screen is updated more frequently and the game may take longer to respond to your mouse clicks
In real life, players put a small transparent red button over the number on their board when the number is read out by the caller. Try to copy this. This may not work correctly on all browsers. Otherwise the whole square is colored in
When you click a number on your board, an orange button may appear. Is it round rather than square? This only works on newer browsers
To help you see where the mouse cursor currently is on your board, an outline is drawn around the number you are currently over. On slow computers, this may slow down the mouse movement over your board
Is there a list of the last few numbers read out by the caller and a list of all the numbers read out so far in numeric order?
Do the numbers called out so far have different colors?
Do the numbers called out so far have circles around them to look like the balls picked out by the caller in real life?
Are all the possible numbers shown in grey and then colored in when a numbers is called out? This may slow down the game a little and take up more space. This setting is the same as the 'See all balls?' option that may be shown on the first screen
Is there a box which grows in size as more numbers are called out? There is also a count of the numbers called out so far, and counts of how many numbers it took to get a line and a house, with averages across all games included later
Between games, are all the players listed? The number of players is shown. The names of players are also shown if there are not too many players. The players are listed just above your board. The reason all the players are listed is to give an idea as to how many players there are whose boards are not shown. You may only be able to see the boards of players sitting at your table
During a game, is there a list displayed of the players whose boards are not shown? This list is also displayed when players leave or join at the start of a game. This list is displayed below any boards that are showing. The number of players with boards that are not shown is displayed. The names of players with boards that are not shown are also displayed if there are not too many such players. The boards of players may not be shown because the players are not sitting at your table and so you cannot see their boards clearly
Are the boards and buttons obscured when you look at the scores or the settings? This reminds you that the 'Continue' button under the message does not work in the settings.This may not work
Are you using a touch screen device? If you are, then the long descriptions of options are toggled on and off, and the game will ask you to 'press' items rather than 'click' them. This setting is the same as the 'Touch?' option that may be shown on the first screen
Are the boards, buttons, and text made larger for a device such as an iPad or tablet where you touch the screen rather than use a computer mouse? This setting is the same as the 'Touch layout?' option that may be shown on the first screen
Can your board be reduced in size to fit the screen, at the start of a game with previously saved settings, or during a game when restoring settings? The game uses the value this option had when the settings were saved. If the settings were saved with an old version of the game that does not have this option, then the current (or default) value is used
If your board is too big to fit on the screen then reduce the size of your board. This may happen when you choose to have a screen layout suitable for touch-screen devices by setting the option in these settings. The setting here does not work when you load in settings that you saved previously. If you press the 'Fit' button now, then the width of your board may be reduced now to make your board fit into the screen
Are there statistics near the scoreboard? One statistic is: how many numbers, on average, are read out by the caller before a player has a
Are there statistics with the progress bar? The progress bar is a box that gets wider as more numbers are read out by the caller. One statistic is:
Are there shadows under the bingo cards of the players? This works on most browsers
Do the numbers on the cards of the players appear to be raised up? This makes the numbers less clear. The numbers are not raised up in real-life. This only works on newer browsers
Are there shadows under the orange transparent buttons which players put over the numbers on their boards when the numbers are read out by the caller? This only works on newer browsers
Are there shadows under the numbers picked out by the caller? These shadows make the numbers less clear. This only works on newer browsers

Can you quickly choose a layout suitable for a touch-screen such as an iPad or tablet, without going into the settings. A checkbox is normally shown on the page you see at first and between games. You can also say you want a touch-screen layout on the 'Effects' section of these settings
Is there a color gradient in the background of what the caller and players say where you need to press a 'Continue' button? Are there gradients behind the warnings? This may not work on old browsers
Are color gradients used in the background of the scoreboard? Are there color gradients in the grey-out over the scoreboard and the boards? This may not fully work on old browsers
Are color gradients used in the background of the options that are grouped together in the settings? The background of these groups is not colored at all when the 'Size of settings' option is set to 'Small' in the 'Layout' section of the settings. A 'Small' layout is the default for a touch-screen
Is there a color gradient on most of the buttons? On an iPad or iPhone, this may make the buttons be rectangles and not round. Animated buttons are set with the next option. This may not work on old browsers
Is there a color gradient on the progress bar? The progress bar is a box that gets wider as more numbers are read out by the caller. This may not work on old browsers
Is there a color gradient on buttons that may quickly vary their color to get your attention? Some examples are the 'Continue' buttons. On an iPad or iPhone, this may make the buttons be rectangles and not round. Changing the gradient quickly may slow down the game. This may not work on old browsers
Is there a color gradient in the background of the longer descriptions of settings such as this one and the longer descriptions of errors such as when you try to restore settings when there are none saved? Is there a color gradient in the background of some tips? It may not be easy to see the difference. This may not work on old browsers
Is there a color gradient in the circles around the numbers in the lists of numbers called out this far? This makes the numbers more like the balls picked out by the caller in real-life. It may not be easy to see the difference. This may not work on old browsers
Is your board displayed when a game is in progress? (Your board is shown between games except when you are playing continuously with the the 'Play forever' option set on in the 'General' section of the settings). Your board needs to be displayed if the numbers read out by the caller are positioned centered above or below your board. This 'Show your board' option can be turned off when gathering statistics. If the computer plays for you then the computer will mark your squares which slows the game down. One statistic is how many numbers are read out, on average, before a player has a
Show the number on the ball most recently picked out by the caller? Show the number in words or the nickname for the number? If this option is to be set on, then the 'Show your board during game?' option should also be set on when the called number is positioned centered above or below your board. Both these options can be turned off when gathering statistics as the updates to the screen slow down the game. One statistic is the average number of balls needed to get a
Is a 'Skip' button shown when players or the caller are talking? Press this button to stop the talking and continue with the game This option can be turned off when gathering statistics as the game plays quickly and the 'Skip' button is only briefly shown. One statistic is how many balls are called out, on average, before a player has a
Is a count of the games played so far displayed when a game is in progress? This count is also shown between games when the 'Play forever' option is on in the 'General' section of the settings. This count is the number of games started and differs from the count in the statistics which is the number of games with a 'line' or 'house' or where you run out of balls. This option can be turned on when gathering statistics, so you can see how many games have been played so far. One statistic is how many numbers are read out, on average, before a player has a
Is the average time the games have taken so far displayed when a game is in progress? This average is also shown between games when the 'Play forever' option is on in the 'General' section of the settings. This average is for all games started regardless of whether the game gets as far as a player calling 'line' or 'house'. There are no timings shown in the first game after this option is set on. This option can be turned on when gathering statistics, so that you can see how long it is going to take to play a certain number of games. One statistic is how many numbers are read out, on average, before a player has a
Can the boards of players be highlighted by coloring the border purple? Can the squares on boards be highlighted by coloring the background purple? Can numbers in the list of numbers read out so far be highlighted with a red ring? (this only happens when the numbers look like balls). An example of highlighting is when a player calls a '#' and the caller goes through checking the numbers. If the board of the player is not shown then her board will be drawn, updated and highlighted. This setting can be turned off when gathering statistics to speed up the game. One statistic is the average numbers of balls read out before a player has a
Is a warning shown next to the scoreboard when the number of players calling 'line' or 'house' at the same time exceeds a limit? The limit is set in the 'Max players calling house together' option. If the limit is reached then some players who have a 'line' or 'house' may not appear in the scoreboard. The checking that gives this warning takes a little extra time. This setting might be turned off when gathering statistics. One statistic is how many numbers are read out, on average, before a player has a
Are several colors used in the long descriptions of these settings? The colors help to highlight different parts of the long descriptions. The colors make the long descriptions more interesting to read. For example, references to other options in the settings are colored blue. Some parts of the long descriptions may also be in italic
Is a bar chart shown near the scoreboard? This chart shows how many numbers were read out by the caller before a player correctly called 'line' or 'house'? How does this vary across games?
Is a small bar chart shown near the progress bar? This chart shows how many numbers were read out by the caller before a player correctly called 'line' or 'house' How does this vary across games? The chart is updated as the game is played
Is a distribution chart shown near the scoreboard? This chart shows the pattern behind how many numbers need to be read out by the caller before players correctly call 'line' or 'house'?
Is the distribution data shown near the scoreboard? This data shows the pattern to how many numbers were read out by the caller before players correctly called 'line' or 'house'

Are color gradients used in the bars of the charts near the scoreboard? This may not fully work on old browsers
Are detailed statistics gathered about how many numbers were called with a particular number of players? If so then a table and average are shown within the statistics next to the scoreboard. Gathering these statistics slows down the game a little bit
Order of table in statistics:
Players
Numbers called
What is the order of the rows in the table in the statistics? The table shows how many numbers were called out when there were a given number of players. The table can be ordered by the number of players or by how many numbers were called (descending). You can also click the headings of the table to change the order
Are color gradients used when a row is highlighted in the table in the statistics? The table shows how many numbers were called out for a given number of players. This may not fully work on old browsers
When a player leaves, her board will shrink and fade away. When a player joins, her board will expand and fade in with the colors going from light to dark. This animation slows down the game and may not work in all browsers
In real life, the player gives her old board to the person calling out the numbers and chooses a new board from a selection that the caller has. The animation tries to copy this
To help you notice that the game has paused after a message has appeared, the button you press to continue the game is shown changing color
For example, after a player has correctly called a line, the word 'line' is shown increasing in size and fading away. This helps you know when the aim of the game has changed from a line to a house
For example, after a player has called a house and her numbers have been checked, the word 'house' is shown moving away from the center in a spiral whilst fading away
Is the brief description of the game animated on the first screen? For example, the description may be rotated. The idea is to draw attention to the description. These animations may not work on old browsers

The scoreboard may not contain all the scores as too many players called 'line' or 'house' at the same time.
