For an Apple device

Then click on the install button.
The application will install on your device. Once installed, you can launch the game by tapping the game icon.
The first time you launch the application, you will be presented with a screen asking if you already have a Funbridge account.
If you answer "No".
The application will propose you to discover the game by playing the first deal or by initiating you to bridge.
If you choose to play the first deal, the game will offer you a guided game, explaining each step.
Play my first deal
First of all, you will have to determine a bid according to your cards.
To bid, you just have to touch the bid you want to make. The bidding cards are then zoomed in.
Touch the bid you want to make again and it will be zoomed in again. It is in this context that we display the bidding advice window if you have checked it in the application settings (more information in the Funbridge > Settings section).
Touch the auction card one last time to validate your bid.
You can cancel the selected auction at any time by touching one of the greyed-out auctions.
At the end of the bidding sequence, a window shows you the contract that will be played and its declarer.
Playing the card
To play a card, simply touch the card you wish to play.
If the suit to be played is known (in the course of the trick), Funbridge preselects the cards of the requested suit: all you have to do is press the card you wish to play.
If the suit to be played is not known (you don't have any in your hand or you have to play the first card of the trick), press on the suit you wish to play. Funbridge will preselect the cards of that suit for you; you just have to press the card you want to play.
Funbridge automatically plays the singletons (single card of a suit in your hand).
At any time you can open the application's side panel on the right side of the game table (always displayed on iPad in landscape format). This panel gives you access to the application settings and to different actions like "claim", "forfeit" or "stop" to stop the current deal.
Aids and cues during the game
At the table, the player whose turn it is to play is indicated by a small yellow arrow.
Your honor points in South are displayed during the bids at the bottom left of the bidding cards.
The vulnerability is indicated by the color of the cardinalities North, South, East, and West: red means vulnerable, and green means not vulnerable.
The number of tricks made by the side playing the contract is displayed on the mat, in the form of a fraction: the number of tricks made / the number of tricks to make the contract.
At the end of this introductory game, the game will ask you to enter your nickname. This way, you can appear in the rankings and your friends will be able to find you.
Congratulations, your Funbridge account is now created! However, we recommend that you complete it by entering your email address and a password. This will allow you to benefit from additional data and be able to connect to other devices with these credentials.
If you answer "Yes
You will need to enter your Funbridge account information, indicating in the "E-mail or nickname" field the e-mail address or nickname you entered when you created your account.
