BJ Bridge (BriJ) Lite


BJ Bridge is a contract bridge card game for Android with unique duplicate bridge competitive scoring features.

Have you ever wondered how to play contract bridge? Or have you played bridge for some time and want to brush up on the latest conventions? Or just want to practice your game between visits to your bridge club?

BriJ is for you. It has levels to suit both beginners and those who already play bridge. There's plenty of help at every stage, suggesting WHY as well as WHAT to bid or play.

Not bad I like the layout and the play in general. Just a few real annoying traits by the AI. The worst being that it won't take finesses that it should know it will automatically win. But besides that and a few other tibits, it's fun.

The most Amazing app! Excellent app! I would recomend it to anyone who has played bridge before and to people who have never played it. It is very addictive and even better when playing via bluetooth with your friends. The app is better than any bridge game on the market. The game responds very rapidly. And even suitable for any age player
