BGBlitz comes in three versions:

  • The Free Version includes all the features already in pre 1.0 versions, plus numerous improvements (naturally, all contributed stuff is in the free version).
  • The Player Version adds playing against BGBlitz, playing online, evaluation of positions and showing the best moves (in every context, e.g. play, replay, database etc.). This version costs $23.
  • The Professional Version includes a rollout facility and a tutor giving comments on cube handling and game play. Further features (e.g. Match analysis) will come. This version costs $46.

All minor upgrades and one major upgrade are free. I.e. if you bought a 1.x version all updates up to 2.99 are free; if you bought an 2.x all updates up to 3.99 are free.

Upgrading from the Player Version to the Professional Version is possible at any time, and the upgrade price is $23 (exactly the difference in cost between the two versions).

It is planned to make further add-ons available, e.g. BGBlitz is designed from the ground up to incorporate many playing engines, so it is possible for other developers to include their bots in BGBlitz and make them available for free or commercially.
