WHAT IS BRIDGE?

BRIDGE, OR CONTRACT BRIDGE TO give it its full name, is a card game involving a standard deck of 52 cards and is played with four players. Players are sat around a table, or anything else which you can play on, and are divided into two partnerships of two, with each partnership competing to score more points than the other.

Bridge is a trick taking game with four phases each time the cards are dealt. Players study their hands and then bid the number of tricks they believe they and their partner will take in the round. Once a bid is made and cannot be bettered, the play begins. The partnership who won the bid will try to gain this number of tricks, while the other partnership will try and defend against this, hoping to take as many tricks as they can.

Scoring is tallied at the end of each round and the winner is declared when a certain number of points is reached, or when certain conditions are met.

HISTORY

The game of Bridge was derived from the game of Whist, which was a popular card game in the 1600s. Much like Bridge, Whist was a game in which four players, playing in partnerships, played to take as many tricks as they could. The main differences to the modern game of Bridge was that there was no bidding to decide which suit would be the trump suit, and there was a different way to score the game.

Whist was very popular in many parts of the world and is still played by many people today. By the late 1800s, the game of Whist was evolving and a number of offshoots were born. A number of ‘betting stake’ rules were added.

As the world tipped over into the early 20th century, two popular offshoots of the game took hold, Plafond in France and Auction Bridge in other places. Plafond added an extra element in that players would have to announce the number of tricks they would take. Auction Bridge brought the idea of bidding to decide which suit would be the trump suit.

It was in 1925 that these two offshoots of Whist merged to form the game of Bridge which is played worldwide today. It was the American, Harold Vanderbilt, who combined the two while on a long cruise. This combination brought together the unique rules of each game while adding some others to create the game we all know and love today.

A new scoring system was created. The word ‘contract’ was added to the title to signify the contract which was brokered by the two partners within the game. In the game, the players, who were in partnership together, would be entered into a contract to win the number of tricks decided in the bidding stage. A set of rewards were set up for partners who fulfilled this contract, while there were a set of penalties for those partners who did not.

It was in the early 1930s that Bridge entered the Golden Age. There were many famous matches and tournaments set up. The big game popularity of bridge faded as the 1950s were entered, but the popularity endured.
