Bridge is a trick-taking game using a standard 52-card deck. It is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table. Millions of people play bridge worldwide in clubs, tournaments, online and with friends at home, making it one of the world’s most popular card games, particularly among seniors.
The game consists of several deals each progressing through four phases: dealing the cards, the auction (also referred to as bidding), playing the cards, and scoring the results. Skills required to play are memory, tactics, communication and most importantly, patience, especially with your partner.
Bridge is played every Friday, either morning or afternoon, in members’ homes. Contact Lilo A. for more details or if you wish to play.
