Welcome to the 2019 edition of Bridge. With AI and machine learning all the rage, apparently even toasters need AI, it should be no real surprise the 2019 edition contains a slightly stronger state of the art artificial intelligence Bridge engine.
The 2019 edition celebrates 16 years of ZingMagic and over 36 years bringing you the best free Duplicate, Chicago and Rubber Bridge card games around.
Bridge V+ supports the 3 primary variants of the card game of Bridge: Rubber, Chicago and Duplicate Bridge.
In Rubber Bridge a rubber is played as the best of three games. A game is won by the first partnership to score 100 or more points in successful contracts.
In Chicago Bridge you play four hands of Bridge. The winner is the partnership that scores the most points in those hands.
In Duplicate Bridge the same hands are played by each partnership that has entered a tournament. The winner is the partnership that scores the most points.
Please note that Duplicate Bridge tournaments can be played for virtual or real money. To comply with current legislation real money tournaments are only available to over 18s in a limited set of territories. Device location must be enabled to ensure eligibility.

Ratings and Reviews
Game Engine needs to be updated
Why my partner is playing against me? Most of the time the opponents get the best card, that I can get. But my own partner will bid unnecessarily high and then lose the game is not understandable. I bid for 1 spade, it will bid 5 spade after me. Having great card from own suit but will bid for another that it doesn't have any card top 10. Will not allow me to double the opponents by placing much higher bid of a suit that it didn't have any card. And all these cases, losing the game. My partner will start the game with a suit that's only favorable for the opponents.
My opponents on the other hand, always know what cards everyone has and bid that way. My partner also knows what card everyone has and will bid for suit that's just not logical in any ways.
This game is making me frustrated every time I hope this will get better specially after any updates. But it remains the same.
Developer Response ,
Over a statistical meaningful sample of hands neither side gets more points than the other. As in real life there are times when one side can get runs of more/less points than the opponents. Choose the 'Select hand' option if you want to find hands with more/less points.
Auto play testing of 10s of thousands of hands shows that Bridge will occasionally overbid by 1 trick and rarely overbids by more than 1. In these cases its nearly always an unfavourable split of cards that causes contracts to be lost.
Bridge is and always will be a game of teamwork. You need to play with the computer player as much as the computer player is attempting to work with you. Clearly if the engine can autoplay and make the majority of the contracts it bids it is not trying its best to cause you to lose a contract - it has no idea whether its a computer or human that has played a card.
This game has been working fine and it provides a very enjoyable distraction while playing. Unfortunately, something has changed and everytime I try to open the game it crashes. Please fix it folks. It's no good to anyone if it can't be opened and played.
It is working fine again, so thanks for fixing. Please make the game playable in landscape (rather than portrait) view. I use an iPad and having to rotate the iPad to play is very inconvenient.
The robots or whoever the opponents are keep stealing tricks away from player when legally should go to player. Also the partners(robots I presume) never bid right. They don’t open when they should, they bid suits that they don’t have and then bid a rediculous six when neither partner has the possibility of making it. It’s also rare that the opposing team loses the bid or the ability of making it with overtricks. I enjoy playing bridge and like practicing on line, but you need to fix these bugs for your app to be enjoyable.
