Q: What are Badges?
A: Badges are achievements that you earn for being a trivia expert. They are content specific, very cool looking and extremely socially oriented. You will be able to collect these Badges, brag about them, and use them as a way to examine which subjects you excel at the most.
Q: Are Facebook and Network Badges related?
A: No. The Badges you will receive for playing Buzztime in one of our restaurant or bar locations (Buzztime's network) exist separately from the Badges you earn playing the Buzztime Trivia Facebook app. For the time being they have nothing to do with one another. You can learn more about the Facebook Badges here.
