For Macs, iPads, Tablets, and Smartphones

Unfortunately, the current version of the Learn to Play Bridge software is not compatible with many modern devices, including Macs, iPads, tablets, and smartphones. This software was only designed to run on computers running Microsoft Windows. However, the ACBL has developed an updated, modern version of Learn to Play Bridge. The new approach is more hands on and interactive.

We'd like to invite you to register, play and give us your feedback on the developing version. You can access the new Learn to Play Bridge website at:
