I could be remembering incorrectly, but the original Windows version (no longer supported) used to have a 4 color option. The windows version had probably a hundred+ user selectable options that the current version doesn't support. At the time BBO switched from a windows version to a web based version, BBO said it was a deliberate decision to reduce the number of user options because it "confused" the users (and you can't have "confused" users because it takes too much support).

Having too many options is clearly not a good idea, but killing off useful options is not great either. Some of the current design "choices" (like not offering split screen on a tablet) really leave one wondering.

You can always "hide" advanced options in sub-submenus, and you can add a "Restore Default Settings" button. I don't see why limiting options is a good idea.

Dear BBO:

Please implement the ability to show 4 colour cards on the system. It would be a BIG help to so many players.

Many of the other bridge systems are using 4 colour cards and it would be nice if BBO would catch up!

Thank you!
