What is Bridge?
Bridge is a trick taking card game played by four players who form two partnerships. Players within a partnership face each other across a 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.

DEVELOPED BY BRIDGE PLAYERS
The team behind Omar Sharif Bridge have been producing Bridge games for nearly 40 years. One of our first products was Bridge Challenger released in the early 80s!

Do we get every bid correct or play every hand perfectly? absolutely not!. Often there is no one single correct answer making Bridge the game we love. Meanwhile we continue to develop and improve the game.

What’s New

Version 5.50

Sorry, left some test code enabled in the engine for the previous release that override the selected user bidding conventions. Bit embarrassing!. Apologies for that, should now all be fixed and play the selected conventions again.

Great app

I really enjoy this app. Play it every day and have improved my game significantly over time. The interface is largely intuitive and easy to use. Very occasionally the computer players make bids that have me scratching my head, but that is rare. (Though I just played a hand where I bid 4NT and North responded with 5H, but had no aces!)

One suggested improvement: the “Hint” button plays a card for you. Better to have it highlight the card so the player can decide for him/herself whether to play.

(Also, the Tournament section requires tickets to play. The tickets are for sale, but the app constantly gives bonus tickets for free, so I’ve never had to buy tickets. Not a complaint! Just don’t understand why the bonus tickets are given. )

Best I’ve found

Update: Yay! Repeated requests for reviews of this app have been done away with in the latest update. Please update your app! 3/4/21

I’ve been playing with this app since it first came out. It’s the best it’s ever been in the current update. I generally play the tournaments and at times have not understood my partner’s bidding, leads or play. But I can’t specify which game or tournament. PLEASE stop asking me to review this app.

We believe we have fixed the problem around repeated reviews in the current update, approved by Apple overnight.

Tournament Games Statistics

I usually play 3-4 tournament games every day, and it seemed that most of them are played by the computer with N/S just having very few points and just playing defense, usually not successful.
Decided to check results since March 1 for the games I played.
According to my best guess concerning how many games might have had the 30 player maximum, only about 25% of the scores were positive numbers, so the hands are set up for E/W to win most of the bidding and have unusual hands when N/S bids.
Players enjoy playing the hands more than generally unsuccessful defense, so it would be appreciated if the hands were more even.
It would also be nice to know what the bid sheet looks like for North, because I often can not figure out why or why not a bid was made. I have not been able to figure out if North is just a really bad player or is he doing a convention I know nothing about.
Even with this lack or trust and getting to the correct contacts, I still are close to 8000 points and have won my share of points, but it could be so much better.
Thank you for looking into these two concerns.

Almost certainly the bidding conventions you have told Bridge that you are playing are not quite the same as those actually being played which will confuse both you and the game engine. Your computer partner processes bids in exactly the same way as your opponents - its the exact same code. 

Over a statistically meaningful number of hands all players get the same points - we know because we test for it. 

Since all human players in a tournament are dealt the same cards your implication that somehow the game is trying to disadvantage you simply does not make sense - regardless of whether the computer opponents get better or worse hands.
