Bridge is a trick-taking card game played by 4 players in 2 partnerships. The partnerships sit opposite one another across a table. 13 face-down cards are dealt to each player, beginning with the player on the dealer's left. The game begins with an auction during which each partnership makes a bid, aiming to score points during the rounds of play, either by making its bid or by defeating the other partnership's bid. At the end of play, the side with the highest number of points wins. Bridge can be played in tournaments, in which case each table of partnerships plays the same hands to eliminate the effect of luck.
Since 1930, Bridge has been one of the world's most loved card games, celebrated as a sociable, inexpensive and brain-training pastime. Played in an intimate group of four or at a large tournament, it always requires partner collaboration and social guesswork. The brain training benefits of bridge are widely acknowledged - Bill Gates is a particular advocate of the game! Based on skill rather than luck, each play requires a different solution, and tests your memory, problem-solving and skills of deduction.
