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.

Please note that the Lite version has a fixed Benji-Acol bidding system that will not suit everyone. The PRO version offers a choice of systems, including SAYC, with a customisable selection of bidding conventions.

Good game minor issue The layout makes it a little hard to use on a phone, especially when playing cards. But hint and analysis is a big help playing this system. Convinced me to go pro.

Nice app I enjoy playing with BriJ. The author has been very responsive to my request for features. Wish it used American conventions.

Good app The app is very good, plays smoothly and the help system is nice. Not too easy to get into if you are used to another bidding system, takes a little while to get used to, easy to get sidestepped or to give bad info to the AI. Card playing sometimes seems too easy, expected results may be quite different from what you got only by playing the cards with a little care (i'm no good player I should say). Only bad point is that on phones the layout is much cluttered and can become confusing.
