Grand Slam Bridge is a bridge game that represents the rules of Contract Bridge. For both partners a set of bidding conventions, which include Cue Bid, Weak Two-Bid, 5 Card Major, 4 Card Major, Jacoby Transfer, Gambling NT, and Unusual NT, may be adjusted.
The game progress may be saved/restored. Overall statistics for each player in the system are stored and may be displayed. The multiple options allow to adjust the gameplay such as rotate the table or change the TableTop, adjust conventions, give certain cards to certain hands to simulate some cases, set the hands visibility, choose the human/computer player for each hand, etc.
One of the earliest bridge games for PC, Cybron's Grand Slam Bridge is an excellent game that set new standards in the genre-- all with only ASCII characters. The game offers plenty of options and is fairly easy to follow. For example, those who want to work on exclusively their bidding can allow the computer to play out each hand, racing through the tricks in a matter of seconds. It does not have a tutorial for those unfamiliar with the game, but it is a simple yet fun diversion for those who would like to run through a quick game or two.
While it may lack the flash of more recent bridge releases, Grand Slam Bridge is nonetheless an excellent PC bridge game that remains fun even to this day, although you should check out the sequel Grand Slam Bridge II instead for a more graphically pleasing game with stronger AI.
