    Looking for Bridge game


    I am new to linux, and have Puppy 5 on my laptop, Ubuntu on my desktop. I am looking for a casual bridge game to play on the two systems. So far the only card games I've seen are hearts and solitare, can anyone stear me to a repository that has a bridge program?

    Thanks for the site link, I found 2 different bridge programs at The linux game tomb.

    One bridge program I tried to download was a trial version, have to buy to get the permanent one. The the other one led to an endless list of dependencies that I never could figure out how many and which ones I needed. After an hour of downloading different files I gave up.

    If you haven't done so already, you can check out PyBridge to see if it might work out for you:

    PyBridge Wiki

    As always, it's best to use your default package tool to install it rather than compiling it from source, if possible.

    thanks Ozar, I'll check it out when I get a chance. At first glance, Pybridge looks like an online game against other players, where what I'm looking for is a play against the computer version.
    I have a couple of windows versions I like, so will probably wind up trying to use wine to play them. Haven't tried wine yet, but there has to be a first time for everything.
