How to play bridge? Begin here!


Bridge is a trick-taking card game for four players.

  • Bridge is played in partnerships.
  • There is an auction in which players compete to win the final contract.
  • Players play cards in turn. Each round of four cards is called a trick, won by the best card.


Bridge is a partnership game

Bridge is played by four players, with partners seated across from each other. In each hand, you and your partner work together to win tricks. The number of tricks you have to win is determined by the auction.


What is an auction in bridge?

During the auction, players place bids to tell their partner what kind of cards they are holding. Like any auction, the partnership which bids the highest determines the contract and has to win a certain number of tricks.
