BridgeTrainer

Bridge is a trick-taking game played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table.

The game starts by dealing a pack of 52 cards one card at a time to each players. Each player will have 13 cards on hand. Card ranking starts from Ace highest, then King, ..down to Two lowest.

Each player starting from the one left to the dealer will “bid” according to the strength and distribution pattern of his/her cards, and the number of tricks its partnership expect to take more than 6 tricks. Each player in a clockwise direction will then take turn to bid. If a player does not want to bid, he/she says “Pass”.

The partnership who bid the highest contract has to win tricks equal to its level of contract plus 6. If the partnership makes the contract, it gains score. Otherwise the other partnership gains score.

The challenge of the game is how a partnership bid the highest contract according the strength and distribution pattern of their cards and how to play to make the contract.

The BridgeTrainer is designed to help you to learn and improve playing bridge. It has three modes of playing. The Learning Mode lets you see all the cards and give you suggestion on how to bid and play. The Practice Mode lets you see only your cards but still give you suggestion on how to bid and play. The Compete Mode simulates the real game where you play with a robot as your partner and two robots as your opponents.

To play the game :-

  1. On the Welcome Page, select either the Quick or Slow Mode and one of the playing mode and then click option Start.
  2. The playing starts with the bidding. When it’s your turn to bid, if there is a suggested bidding and you agree with it, you just click Option Bid. If you want to input your own bidding you input the level and the suit of the bidding and then click option Bid. For example if you want to bid 1 club, you input 1 in the level box and “c” in the suit box. If you want to bid 1 notrump, you input 1 and “n”. If you want to double, you input “x” in the level box. If you want to redouble you input “xx” in the level box.
  3. If you have no bid, you click option Pass.
  4. In the Learning Mode, point is shown for each bidder. For notrump bid, the point is the overall high card point. For trump bid, the point includes high card point plus distribution point plus 2 points for each extra trump card the partnership has above 8 trump card. The high card point is 4 for an ace, 3 for a king, 2 for a queen, and 1 for a jack. The distribution point is 1 for a doubleton, 2 for a singleton which is not king, queen, or jack, 3 for void in a suit. You don’t count the distribution point when you have a void or singleton or doubleton in partner’s bid suit. You add 2 more point for a void and 1 more point for a singleton when you have trump fit with your partner.
  5. When the bidding stop (Pass for three consecutive players), the player who made the first bid of the highest bidding suit is the Declarer. The player left to the Declarer lead the first card to play the game. Then the player opposite the Declarer called the Dummy shows all its cards. The player who wins the trick make the next lead.
  6. When it’s your turn to play, if there is a suggestion on the card you should play and you agree with it, you simply click option Play. If you do not agree or there is no suggestion, you need to input the position of the card you want to play and then click option Play.
  7. If you do not want to input the card position and just want the system to play for you, you click option Claim.
  8. When all the cards are played. The system shows the scores of both partnerships, scores for the partnership who makes the contract or the partnership who defeats the contract.
  9. If you want to observe again how the last hand is bid and played, you click option Last.
  10. If you want to play a new hand, click option Next.

Cribbage

is a card game for two players or up to four, using a standard 52 card pack. Cards rank KQ J10….32A. The objective of the game is for a player to score 121 points before the other and win the game. Before the game starts each player draws a card. The player draws a lower card deals first and each player takes turn to be the dealer in successive hands. The loser of the game is to be the dealer in the next game. The game then proceeds as follow :-

  1. The dealer deals 6 cards face down to each player one at a time. The remaining cards are placed face down as stock.
  2. Each player discards two cards face down to form the crib. The crib will count for the dealer. Therefore the non-dealer will try to discard two cards to form a crib least valuable to the dealer.
  3. The non-dealer cuts a card in the face down stock and place it face up on the top of the stock. The face up card is called the “start” card. If the start card is a Jack, the dealer gains two points.
  4. The non-dealer start to place a card from his/her hand face up in front of his/herself. Ace is counted as one, all picture cards are counted as ten, all number cards are counted as their face value. And then each player takes turn to play this step.
  5. A player has to stop placing a card face up and say “Go” when all the face up cards of both players add up to 31, or will exceed 31 if to place another card face up. If after placing a card and all the face up cards add up to exactly 31, the player gain two points.
  6. A player who cannot place a card since it will exceed 31 has to pass for its opponent to play. If the opponent can neither place a card, the player who places its last card gains one point. All the face up cards are then turned over and placed aside.
  7. The opponent of the player who placed the last card repeats playing from step 4. If he or she has no card left on hand, then the other player keeps on playing from step 4 until there is no card on hand.
  8. You can gain more points during the play as follow :-

    8.1) You gain 2 points if you play a card and the total face up cards add up to 15.

    8.2) You gain 2 points if you play a card which has the same rank as the previous face up card ( Pair).

    8.3) You gain 6 points if you play a card which has the same rank as the previous pair of face up cards (Pair Royal).

    8.4) You gain 12 if you play a card which has the same rank as the previous three face up cards (Double Pair Royal).

    8.5) You gain points if you play a card which can form a set of running cards with the previous cards such as you play 7 and the previous two cards are 8 and 6 or 6 and 8. The points gained are equal to the number of running cards in this case 3. And if your opponent plays a card of 9, he/she gains 4 points.

  9. When both players have no card on hand, there is another round of scoring points from their played cards combined with the start card. The scoring starts first with the non-dealer is as follow :-

    9.1) Any combination of card add up to 15 scores 2 point for each combination. For example if your hand has card K Q 5 3 2 the card combinations which add up to 15 are K 5, K 3 2, Q 5, Q 3 2. therefore you gain 8 points.

    9.2) Any pair of cards scores 2 points. For example if you have 4 4 4 you have 3 pairs from

    4 4 x , 4 x 4, x 4 4, therefore you gain 6 points from the cards 4 4 4. If you have cards 4 4 4 4, you have 6 pairs from 4 4 x x, 4 x 4 x, 4 x x 4, x 4 4 x, x 4 x 4, x x 4 4 and therefore you gain 12 points.

9.3) Three cards of consecutive rank (irrespective of suit), such as A 2 3, score 3 points for a run. A hand such as 6 7 7 8 scores 12 points:- 3 points of 6 7 x 8 , 3 points from

6 x 7 8, 4 point from x 7 x 8 ( add up 15) and x x 7 8, 2 points from x 7 7 x.

If you have more than 3 consecutive cards, you gain points equal to the number of consecutive card.

9.4) If all your four cards are in the same suit you gain 4 points; if the start card also has the same suit you gain 5 points.

  1. Then the dealer scores point from his/her hand similarly as step 9.
  2. Finally the dealer displays the four cards in the crib and scores them with the start card. The scoring is similar to step 9.1 to step 9.3. If only all four cards in the crib have the same suit with the start card, then the dealer gain 5 points.
  3. As soon as a player’s score reaches or exceeds 121 at any stage of the game, he/she wins the game and the game ends.
