This game is not a tutorial on Bridge, but can be used by beginners to learn
the game. The following sections give a good general introduction to the
rules of the game, and the basic techniques of bidding and play. There are
many excellent books available in stores and libraries, covering all phases
of the game.
If you're an intermediate or advanced player, you can go right to PLAYING
THE GAME (or, skip this entirely, and jump right into the game.)
Bridge is played by 4 players. All cards are dealt so each player has 13
cards that are kept hidden from other players. In the program, you are
always considered to be SOUTH.
Your partner plays NORTH, and your opponents are EAST and WEST.
A hand of bridge is divided into 2 parts: bidding and play. During bidding
you try to describe your hand to your partner and make a claim to the number
of tricks you can take. During play you try to make the contract that you bid.
