What is Bridge? Bridge is a card game invented over 100 years ago and still being played around the world. Unlike other games that you master and quit playing eventually because they no longer challenge you. Bridge is a game that offers continuous challenges, new situations to be analyzed every time you play and a complex and intriguing language to be learned and mastered.
It is a game full of strategy and tactics. It is part science, part math, part logic, part reason. Bridge embodies cooperation, logic, and problem solving. It is also a partnership game. Trust, communication, and patience are essential attributes of winning bridge.
