Welcome to the 2020 edition of Omar Sharif Bridge. With 2 modes of play, perfect visibility, practically unlimited deals (alright only 2 billion hands!) and the ability to search for hands matching one of many different criteria this traditional Bridge game is sure to teach, challenge and entertain you for hours Designed for both beginners and more advanced players you can choose how you prefer to play. There are plenty of features if you are trying to learn Bridge including auto play and hints. Meanwhile the more advanced players can use the bid analysis or replay hand features to explore different lines of card play. Bridge is played by four players who form two partnerships. Players within a partnership face each other across a table. Traditionally, the players are referred to by the points of the compass - North, East, South and West. The two partnerships are North/South and East/West. Omar Sharif Bridge supports 2 variants of the game of Bridge: Rubber and Chicago Bridge. In Rubber Bridge a rubber is played as the best of three games. A game is won by the first partnership to score 100 or more points in successful contracts. In Chicago Bridge you play four hands of Bridge. The winner is the partnership that scores the most points in those hands. GAME FEATURES: * Unlimited hands built in (well approx 2 billion but....) * Play game points or slams all day if thats what you want to do. * Compare your bidding the Bridge V+ AI bidding. * See how the computer would have played the hand. * Replay from any bid or card for that 'what if' moment * Get hints. * Play any or all of the hands. * Ask the computer how it has interpreted the bids made. * All game play is offline, play whenever and wherever you like. * Lots of display options to suit your individual and device preference. DEVELOPED BY BRIDGE PLAYERS The team in behind Bridge have been producing Bridge games for nearly 40 years. One of our first products was Bridge Challenger released in the early 80s! Do we get every bid correct or play every hand perfectly? absolutely not!. Often there is no one single correct answer making Bridge the game we love. Meanwhile we continue to develop and improve the game. COMMENTS + SUGGESTIONS. Please feel free to contact us via our support email if you have comments and suggestions. Please, please include any Deal Id if you are commenting on specific deals as that is the only way we can reasonably play the hand in question here.
