Collecting Ribbons is the bread and butter of BitLife, the absolutely massive text-based life simulator that’s currently taking mobile by storm.

It allows you to live pretty much any life you can imagine, be it rockstar, doctor, or serial killer, and tells the story of your life with a dark but hilarious sense of humour.

As you live a variety of different lives, you’ll start to unlock Ribbons. These reward you for doing different things like getting rich, having a bunch of kids, or committing a lot of crimes.

There are 27 of them in total, and beneath we’re going to list the lot of them. We’ll also give you a few pointers on how to earn them, because we’re nice like that.

If it’s something else you’re looking for, you can check out our other BitLife guides:
