(Juttu luettavissa suomeksi alempana sivulla) The first winner of Lumia Birdie Challenge has been drawn and the winner has a great story to tell. The first Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone is delivered to an active GameBook user, Mika Brunou, from Turku. And here is the story: Brunou, who just turned pro and is playing on…
I can clearly remember it. Dark clouds had sailed behind the horizon, sky was becoming brighter. I was inside the stand structure and climbed those dark green metal bars up to ten feet high with some local fans. It was forbidden area, next to the 18th green, but marshalls had something more urgent to do. There…
A pair of injured gladiators, a happy spaniard and a comeback kid. Those are the story lines of Masters Tournament 2014. “He’s back!” That could have been the story. But not this year. Now the story is different. “His back.” This Sunday Tiger Woods is rehabilitating his injured back instead of fighting for his fifth green jacket…
After colourful events on the last day, this year’s Honda Classic culminated in a four-man playoff about a week ago. It was the young American Russell Henley who birdied The 549-yard 18th that was the first playoff hole and took home a win – his second on the PGA Tour. Now that the tournament weekend…

In addition to sporting a broad range of different game formats for both team and individual games, the founders of GameBook have developed two formats of their own. Duplicate and Erado are both alterations of or additions to the more traditional game formats. And they were designed to make golf more fun and interesting. Just…
In addition to the individually played classic game formats (introduced in part one of this series) GameBook also offers a variety of game formats for teams. While golf is an individual sport – without a question – golf is also very social. And every once in a while it’s good to have somebody else to…
As we know, for the first time since 1904, Golf will be featured on the Olympic stage in Rio de Janeiro. Although Olympics in Rio de Janeiro is still two-plus years away, I though it would be worthwhile to take a sneak peek at what the field would look like if the tournament began tomorrow….

Hello, dear GameBookers! The golf season about coming to an end here in Europe, in Nordic Countries especially while season is now ready to start big time in Australia for example. I ended my Finnish season last weekend at Vuosaari Golf in Helsinki, Finland but hope I’ll get some chances for couple of rounds during the wintertime somewhere in the world.
Even though the peak golf season is now behind, I highly recommend you to record your rounds to the GameBook in case you missed to record some of them in real time. See, last weekend we updated our Game Manager – beta-period is now over and you’re free to use it with full features. Many enhancements arrived, like the new “Edit results” page etc.
With Game Manager you can edit your past results afterwards, add rounds you have played but didn’t record you socre with the app, and also you are able to see and edit your round stats there too. As well as set up your own events easily as well with just couple of simple clicks.
The basic idea, of course, is not changed. Users can set up own pro style tournaments with unlimited number of players online – just couple of simple clicks and off you go. Open the app from your mobile phone and the game is ready there. I mean, who would not like to enjoy hole-by-hole live socring in the golf event?
Gain badges from your achievements
Then, why should you record your score afterwards, in case you didn’t when played? That’s because we just released our latest iOS update for iPhone / iPad and there’s so cool new feature available you definitely will enjoy: BADGES! That’s right, now you can gain badges fro your outstanding achievements like how many rounds you’ve played, in how many different countries, how many birdies you’ve done or even eagles maybe…and so much more!
Gain GameBook badges from your golf achievements now.
Just open the app after you’ve updated the app to the latest version and there’s an in-app pop-up that first says, “You’ve just unlocked multiple badges”. Click “View bages” to see how many badges you have collected so far.
And try to improve! I am personally having a lot of space for improvements left there, for example I’m still chasing the albatross, and I’m not having a hole-in-one either. Actually done a ace but that was over 10 yrs ago when the idea of having the app like this sounded the same as having an own UFO ship sounds nowadays.
Check out how many badges you have already? How much you have left to the next level?
Compare your stats annually
You can always check out your badges by clicking “MORE STATS” from the starting menu (under your profile picture) but also there a major improvement in stats. You Gamebookers have asked us a lot if we could create an option to compare your seasonal stats, not just over all stats.
Like we’ve said many times, this service is created for you guys so your opinions and feedbacks are number one thing for us. Always. So now you can compare your annual stats, but not just your own but to your friends stats as well. Open you “FRIENDS” list to see the list of your GameBook friends, click player’s name you want to compare the statistic and you will get an option to “COMPARE”.
Compare your own stats to your friends’ stats now with GameBook iOS app. Seems that Mane has played a lot better than me this year, which…well, actually isn’t surprise. 🙂
We hope you guys love these new features! And stay tuned, there’s more to follow, sooner than you might expect. 🙂
