THE BRIDGE LOUNGE
Inside the Bridge Lounge, you will find a variety of ways to enjoy a more relaxed and/or instructional game of Bridge.
Here at BridgeLesson.com, we conduct all of our bridge games on the Real Bridge Platform. This software allows you to see and speak to your opponents just like face to face bridge. Bid and play using a modern, intuitive interface. No installation required just click on the link provided for our games, sit down and play some bridge.
Take a look at the options currently available in the lounge and choose the experience that works best for your needs. Whenever the Bridge Lounge is open, the options below will be available.
FULL SUPERVISED PLAY (90 minutes)
Sit down at one of our supervised play tables and you will be able to play the game and call the teacher over when you have a question about a hand. This relaxed version of the game is great for those that aren’t ready to jump into a competitive duplicate just yet. Plan to be at these tables for the entire 90 minute session.
PRIVATE BRIDGE TABLES
Have a group of four and just want to play hands privately? This is a great option, especially for groups of similar level players. Play at your own pace and keep it fun at these private tables. As always, the director/teacher will be available for your questions during the game. (This can also be a great option for those of you that want to teach some friends the game.)
“PAIR UP” TABLES
Looking to find a partner for today’s game and/or for future games? This is a great new option available for those of you looking for regular partners. Discuss your system, style, levels and see if it’s a match. If not, move on to the next open partnership table and continue searching for someone compatible. Picture it like a version of speed dating but for bridge partners :-). If you find your partner, you can jump into any open “Partnership Practice Table” in the lounge and get some practice with the time left in the session.
SIT & GO TABLES
Don’t have an entire 90 minutes to play? Stop by the Bridge Lounge, anytime it’s open, and seek out these tables. Other players will fill the tables and you can play as little or as long as you like.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What devices can I use? – Any laptop, desktop or tablet. Real Bridge does not work on your phone yet. Real Bridge may also experience issues on tablets that are over 5 years old.
What browser should I use? – With a computer, any modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari..) should work. On an Apple iPad, you must use the Safari browser.
Do I need a webcam? – Real Bridge does not require a webcam to run; you can play without being connected on video or audio. However, without video, the experience is compromised. Real Bridge works perfectly with inexpensive webcams which are widely available.
How fast does my connection need to be? – Real Bridge requires around .5 Mbps of download and upload bandwidth for video. If you have a weak connection, you can turn off your camera and/or the incoming video to reduce bandwidth requirements.
