Wiki Bridge © 2017 #20
Play a round of Bridge against your computer on any device. No sign-up required, nothing to join, just a quick practice environment when friends aren't available.
This game assumes you already know how to play Bridge. If not click here for a quick introduction.
Tweaked the drag-n-drop to be more forgiving when dropping cards on piles.
Cosmetic improvements to the user interface.
Tweaked the layout logic to get more tabletop area especially on smaller devices.
If you don't like the hand you were dealt select your browser's "Refresh" button to deal a new one.
Your hand (SOUTH) is at the bottom of the screen, your partner (NORTH), controlled by the computer, is at the top. By default N/S will be dealt the higher point hands allowing you to play for declarer more often.
The declarer's contract is displayed at the top left as the team (N/S or E/W), the level (1-7), the trump suit (C, D, H, S or N) and the current up (+N) or down (-N) trick count.
Tricks won by the declaring team are collected at the bottom left. Tricks won by the defending team are collected at the bottom right. The cards in the last trick, for each team, can be viewed at any time by tapping on the pile.
Hand points are calculated as follows.
A player should have more than 12 points to open the bidding and at least 6 points to respond to an opening bid.
Wiki Bridge uses a modified Goren bidding system that is similar to the modern Standard American system as outlined in this table.
|(☆ = No Trump)|
|1 in suit (1♥)||13-23||4+ trumps|
|2 in suit (2♠)||24+||4+ trumps|
|Response to Opening 1 in Suit|
|raise to 2 in suit (1♥ 2♥)||6-9||4+ trumps|
|raise to 3 in suit (1♥ 3♥)||13-16||4+ trumps|
|1 in higher suit (1♥ 1♠)||6+||4+ trumps|
|2 in higher suit (1♥ 2♠)||10+||4+ trumps|
|Response to Opening 2 in Suit|
|anything else||7+||Ace, King and 4+ trumps|
|Stayman (1☆ 2♣)||7+|
|Other Special Bids|
|2 in suit to 1☆ (1☆ 2♥)||0-6||6+ trumps|
|second 2☆ (1♥ 2♣ 2☆)||13-15||even distribution|
|second 3☆ (1♥ 2♣ 3☆)||19-21||even distribution|
|shutout (open 3)||0-12||7+ trumps, weak hand|
|opponent overcall||8+||5+ trumps|
When it's your turn to play, drag a card from your hand (or North's hand if dummy) and drop it onto the transparent target area displayed near the center of the table ("S" for South or "N" for North). If you drop it outside the target it will slide back to your hand. This is the computer equivalent of "a card laid is a card played" giving you a chance to reconsider your play before committing.
