Description from the packaging.

A Sharp Opponent.
A Solid Partner.
A Great Way to Polish Your Bridge Skills.

Need a fourth?
Now you can play a challenging game of bridge no matter how many players you have. Play solitaire, practice communication skills with a partner, or play with three humans and a computer fourth.

Strong Computer Play.
Your computer opponents can be set at three different levels of aggressiveness. High computer intelligence gives them a good offensive and defensive repertoire, including finesses, ruffs, sloughs, card counting, and suit preference signals. And the computer doesn't cheat- it uses the only information it would have if it were actually playing.

Bidding Conventions.
The program automatically employs Blackwood, Gerber, and Stayman, and uses weak jump overcalls and pre-emptive bids. You can make your own choice between weak 2-bids, 4 or 5 majors, and more.

A Billion Different Hands.
The computer can deal every possible bridge hand. And you can specify what kind of hands you want- slam hands only, games only, no-trump only- so you can practice on problem areas. You can even design the hands yourself.

Learning The Easy Way
Perfect for beginners, too. Play practice games with open hands, or replay hands to learn by trial and error. And whenever you get stuck, you can ask the computer for a hint.
