Did you know that Quick Bridge can be played on any device, even your smartphone?

Just navigate to here from your smartphone to try it out.

Among other improvements this update (2016.8) spreads out East's and West's hands a bit so you can see more of the cards in the dummy hand.

I continue to make improvements to the game so be sure to check back often for the latest.

Hand Points

Being able to know the point value of your hand is crucial to your bidding strategy with your partner. While it is possible to count your own points (and you should learn to do so) for your convenience the latest release of Quick Bridge (2016.5) displays your points in a little red badge to the left of your hand.

For reference, points are tallied as 4 for an ACE, 3 for a KING, 2 for a QUEEN, 1 for a JACK, 2 for a Singleton (one card in a suit) and 1 for a Doubleton (2 cards in a suit). A player should have at least 12 points to open the bidding and at least 6 to respond to a bid.

Quick Bridge is LIVE

I am pleased to announce that Quick Bridge for the web is now live online. 

Now you can enjoy Bridge on any device, Windows, Mac, iPad, tablet, etc. This is the result of months of work porting my popular Quick Bridge for Windows into a web application. I am pleased with the results and will continue making improvements now that it's compatible with a wider platform. Check it out and let me know what you think.
