Do I need a BOOM Membership?

Yes! To assign BOOM Cards you will need a membership. There are 4 membership tiers. One is free and three are paid. You can read about the different levels of membership at the BOOM Learning website: https://wow.boomlearning.com/.

Can I Use Purchased BOOM Decks with the Free Membership?

Yes! However, they can only be used as FastPlay. Decks that are played through FastPlay will not generate progress reports. These are great for practice.

Assigning FastPlay Cards

On the menu bar click “library.” This will take you to your library of any decks you have purchased or created.
