Download the Game
WolfBridge currently only runs under Windows. An improved version along with Mac and iPad versions are in the pipeline but no date has been set yet for their release.
Simply click WolfBridge1.2b.zip to download the zipped version of the game. Unzip it into any folder you like and it's ready to play, simply click on the WolfBridge.exe. The file has been checked for viruses by us, but it is always recommended that you run your own virus checker over the file as well.
There is a new experimental version downloadable at WolfBridge1.3a.zip. It contains some bugfixes in the game play but mostly allows scaling for high resolution monitors. In the start dialog under Options/Card Options the setting for Card Scale increases the size of the cards for values above 1.0. I find for a screen resolution of 2880*1800 on a laptop, that a scaling of 2.0 works well. I've called this an experimental version as it hasn't had as rigorous testing and the scaling will probably be changed to be automatic at some point.
WolfBridge is part of a larger project to create a generic card-game playing program. This is why, when you start up WolfBridge you are presented with a small dialog, with currently very few options other than to start playing bridge. From the "File/Play Bridge" menu point you can start as many games of bridge simultaneously as you like. Closing this controlling dialog causes all games to be terminated.
We hope you get a lot of pleasure out of playing the game and look forward to your feedback, either via e-mail or through our guestbook.

If you come across any interesting hands that you want to investigate or send in to us, the best way is to go to "File/Replay Hand", in order to set up the hands and the points score exactly as before playing, then call "File/Save Hand". This then lets you write a "*.brg" file, which you can attach to an e-mail to send to us at info@AcolBridge.co.uk.
WolfBridge can also import hands from the "Times Bridge" game (these are "*.bridge" files, but it doesn't read information on the score or who was on lead etc.
