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.

How to play against friend via bluetooth? This game is pretty good. I like the interface and the fact that you can play with a partner via bluetooth, but I can only get the partnership thing to work via bluetooth. How do you play against your friend, as in the opposing hand via bluetooth? When we select the options to play in opposition it allows one of the players to see 3 hands instead of just the two it's playing on. It also allows either player to play the 3rd hand. What is up with this?? (Note: One of the phones is an older model than the other. S2/S3) Also your videos could use someone speaking and directing people what to do. Thanks for the free app! All and all is the best one i've tried.

Scare-ware on free version App is OK, but "ad"s keep showing scare-ware saying device is infected. Dangerous!

Good game, but contracts and play of the computer are suspect at times

Almost too much information There's so much here it's hard for beginners to grasp the basics of the game. Lots of acronyms that have no explanation.
