A fun alternative to traditional Bridge apps which hones your card play. Ideal for beginners, and truly testing for experienced Bridge players.
Whether you’re a seasoned Grand Master, or a complete novice, WiZ Bridge + is the app for you. Read on ….
FOR THE BRIDGE MASTER
Becoming frustrated with partner, and their bidding, is a fundamental aspect of playing Bridge (some actually seem to enjoy this!)
This frustration is multiplied tenfold in computer Bridge, when ‘partner’ is an inanimate AI Robot, who will not take any notice of your frowns and shouts, and with whom you cannot discuss matters over a drink. WiZBridge+ eliminates all this frustration, by …eliminating ‘partner’!
Loosely based on the established teaching game Mini Bridge,(with many improvements and innovations) ALL BIDDING IS DEFUNCT! Each player (starting with dealer) announces their HCP count, and the player with the highest count, from the partnership with the highest total, becomes the declarer. At this point, his partner becomes ‘dummy’ and tables his hand for all to see. Declarer now decides on the Trump suit, and the number of tricks that he’ll make. As this is a computer game, you’ll be making the decision and playing the cards whenever your side becomes declarers.
Does that sound easy … It’s not! Because while you’re deciding on trumps, and playing the cards, Robot is doing exactly the same thing behind the scenes. The aim of the game is to beat Robot in a ‘head-to-head’ game of Duplicate. Robot is an internationally acclaimed AI, so you’ve got to be on your toes to get one over on him. Try it … you’ll be amazed how challenging and rewarding it is. Then there’s also the added ‘spice’ of playing Duplicate against other users (read all about it below)
FOR THE BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE PLAYER
You’re learning this game, and it’s soooooo frustrating, especially the bidding. Wouldn’t it be nice to ditch this frustration and concentrate on the fun part – the actual card play. With WiZBridge+, you can have hours of fun simply playing contracts, while at the same time learning from Robot the best line of play, and indeed in deciding what the contract should be. An invaluable tool for anyone who’s on the long and sometimes arduous road of improving, or merely starting to learn Bridge.
FOR THE ABSOLUTE NOVICE
Undoubtedly the most complex and daunting aspect of learning Bridge is the bidding. WiZBridge+ bypasses the bidding, and enables complete novices to practice, enjoy, and improve on their card play and hand analysis., within minutes of downloading the app.
And to help you learn, The app is packed with documents, Help files and Info buttons to guide and teach you along the way. You’ll soon be progressing through the 4 levels, each level introduces more Bridge related complexity and strategy.
While It’s great beating a Robot, it’s a different level of thrill entirely when you beat your peers. WiZBridge+ has 24/7 Duplicate competitions, where you’ll be competing with other players who’ve been given exactly the same hands, and who’ll also be trying to beat Robot on their own devices. Duplicate is available at the top two levels of WiZBridge+. Although there are no prizes, the real and meaningful prize is to watch your Statistics and averages improve over time.
STATISTICS & RANKS
We Bridge players love our statistics, and in WiZBridge+ they’re in abundance. There are statistics at every level, where you can monitor your progress. In Duplicate there is also a Ranking system, so you can see the relative ‘quality’ of opponents in your competition.
THE FREE APP, & THE BITS THAT COST
We do not want one penny, cent or kopek before you are fully satisfied that WiZBridge+ is the app for you. For this reason we give everyone hundreds of free hands to try out and evaluate the app (100 when you download, an additional 100 when you register, and 80 free hands at each level of Duplicate) Thereafter there are in-app purchases of hands, ranging from 75 hands for only US$0.99 to $49.99 for 10000 hands.

Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful way to play bridge
I really like the opportunity to play bridge when I want without worrying about scheduling partners. I’m learning the discipline of figuring out what others have rather than guessing. One weakness is coming to relyon seeing both hands before selecting the suit and contract level. Another is not getting explanations why the robot took the approach or plays it did when reviewing the play of the robot hand.
Want to raise your game.
Having now played Bridge for 68 years and in the past been nominated for ACBL Teacher of the year.......
This program is truely remarkable!
While somewhat disregarding bidding, It gives you very tough hands and forces you to fully evaluate all possible approaches to playing the hand before setting the contact. It also makes you evaluate odds based on oppositional point count, while preplanning play. In essence it forces you into using techniques often bypassed by average players. Initially these incites take minutes of evaluation that soon become part of quicker instinctive analysis.
In summation this program can vastly improve the average players game.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the most wonderful review.
Like new math for Bridge
I am a relative novice to Bridge and have enjoyed computer based bridge using iBridge and BBO more than duplicate at clubs. This new app from the makers of iBridge offers a novel approach to this wonderfully complex game. As other reviewers have said the focus shifts some to card play however the ritual of counting points and calculating partner and opponent points is featured so that one is forced to think about the entire table to arrive at the best make able bid or choosing to defend. It is my impression that the teachers I have interacted with have not chosen to focus on this line of thought or see it as a more advanced skill.
It’s fun and intriguing.
