Description

Easy Bridge is a single player, freeware, bridge player and tutor.

This game has been around for a while and earlier versions can be found both on-line and on compilation CDs. The current version, in 2013, that is documented here is Easy Bridge v4.0.2.

When the program is first run it takes the player through a configuration wizard questions the player to find out their skill level and the basic systems they use when playing bridge. These settings are not set in stone and can be changed later on via the game's menu bar.

Easy Bridge caters for absolute beginners who need all the advice they can get, beginners who already know the basics, and those who can already play and who will ask for advice when they need it. Players can bid using natural bidding, Goren, Standard American basic, Standard American using common optional conventions, and ACOL.

The game configuration options include:
  • duplicate or rubber play
  • rebid or replay the last hand
  • customising the bidding conventions used
  • displaying bidding history and trick history during the game
  • dealing specific types of hands such as a minor suit game to either north/south or east/west of hands for practice in bidding and defending
Among the advanced features is a game analysis which shows how the computer derived its bids and planned its play.

The game is played entirely with the mouse in a re-sizable window. It has a an auto-save and a manual save game function.
