Simply the best Bridge game in town, anytime, anywhere.
If you are looking for a fun yet comprehensive Bridge game then look no further.
Omar Sharif Bridge now supports 2 variants of the game of Bridge: Rubber and Chicago Bridge.
Omar Sharif Bridge could be the perfect game. Its ease of play marks it out as a firm favourite for casual gamers, whilst the huge depth of strategy and vast intricacies involved allow it to be a game that can be studied by the most serious card student.
Bridge is played by four players who form two partnerships. Players within a partnership face each other across the bridge table. Traditionally, the players are referred to by the points of the compass - North, East, South and West. The two partnerships are North/South and East/West.
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.
Omar Sharif Bridge features:
• Supports 5 card majors, strong 2 clubs, weak 1NT, Jacoby Transfers, weak 2-Bids and 2NT 11-12 points bidding conventions.
• Plays Chicago (four-deal) and Rubber Bridge.
• Extensive score card information.
• Ability to locate deals matching many bidding criteria.
• Auto bidding.
• Bid analysis to explain the bids made.
• Auto card play.
• Full undo and redo of bids and cards played.
• Extensive display and card play options
What's New in Version 5.22
Significant update to include support for Chicago (four-deal) mini tournament Bridge along with free form Rubber Bridge. A number of minor improvements to various bidding and card play edge conditions.
Chicago addition was nice but...
There seems to be a bug in the Chicago addition. When a hand is "passed out" because no one opens, it just deals the exact same hand again. No way to get it to deal another hand without just making an opening bid yourself with insufficient points.
Otherwise, I love that Chicago was added as an option. Now if they would add some sort of Duplicate play it would be great.
The bidding is still sometimes odd and it doesn't play all conventions correctly. Also no option to input your own convention card, i.e. 2/1, strong or weak two openers, etc.
Could easily be improved
If you would add the capability to view the score without having to wait until the next hand or next game, it would be very helpful.
Fun and Informative
This game teaches you how to play a hand. It is perfect for us beginners before we hit the tables. Feel more comfortable playing bridge live and then keep on practicing!
