    Question Are there any good contract bridge games in linux?

    I am new to linux and am really enjoying the experience. I have noticed that there are many good games available. But I have not found much in the line of contract bridge and that is what i really enjoy on the computer. Are there any?

    Thanks

    Jim

    All I've found is XContractbridge and GIB.

    But GIB costs money -> http://www.gibware.com/

    This review says GIB's the best though.

    From what I can see of the GIB site, this is not a Linux program. There really is no discussion of platforms, except for a reference to Microsoft...

    Xcontractbridge is also not freeware. There is also Pybridge, but you can online play it online. I'm also desperately looking for a good (offline) bridge game for Linux.

    you can also try to install GGZcards through Synaptic, the GGZ gtk+ package. It's got an bridge game in it, although the AI is not the best you could imagine.

    I've just found Floater via another forum site (through Google). It appears to be server based only so no AI, which is a shame as I really need to improve my bidding! On the plus side, it is open source and cross-platform.
    You could give it a go, and ask there and you may get a more definitive answer!
    You can install it using apt-get install floater, and check their website at www.floater.org
    If you find anything more, please let me know. I'm new to linux myself!

    You may want to check out gnubridge.org . It's not exactly a challenging bridge program yet, but I just about wrapped it up to where it's ready for somebody to start poking holes at it.
