How to play bridge – learn the rules [for beginners]
Unfortunately, there aren’t too many Bridge games in the Windows Store, but hopefully the developers will work on some other apps for your love of Contract Bridge card games. Here is a short description, for those who are still new to and learning this game:
The game consists of several bids, each progressing in four phases: deal the cards, the auction (also called the auction), play the hand, and score the results. However, most club and tournament games involve some variation of doubles bridge, where the cards are not redistributed each time, the same deal being played by two or more different groups of players to allow for a comparative score.
In its most basic form, Bridge is a game played by four people in two competing partnership teams. For scoring and reference purposes, each player is identified by one of the cardinal points and so North and South play against East and West. A larger number may participate, either as individuals or in pairs or teams of up to six, in informal tournaments or social gatherings where the rules governing the event are prescribed by the sponsoring host.
Paid Bridge games for Windows 10, Windows 8, and other operating systems come at a pretty steep price point and they are likely aimed at pro players or those who are on certain teams or play in tournaments.

BridgeWin Windows 8 contract, Windows 10 application [Free]
This app offers the classic “Contract Bridge” card game in the Windows Store apps. There are two game modes: single player game and rubber bridge. Based on the Whist card game, Bridge is played by four players who use 52 cards without the 2 jokers. From the description of the application which briefly explains the rules of the game:
Each player is assigned the direction N (north), E (east), S (south), W (west) and they sit on seats around the table. W with E and N with S are 2 pairs (S is always you in this app), and 2 pairs clash. One begins with “auction” and the second “game”. In the auction, a player in the turn calls a number (“level”) and a color (“denomination”) as “1, club”. The level = “How many laps do our pair plan to do beyond half (6 out of 13)”. The denomination = “Which suit is the trump”.
What I didn’t like about the app is that the maps in this Bridge game app could have been bigger, for a better visual experience, but maybe the developers will improve that and improve auctions with a future update. The good thing is that you won’t have to pay a dime because this Bridge app is completely free.
