5.0 out of 5 stars Worked out well for my 92 year old father-in-law January 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was concerned that this program might be too sophisticated/hard to use for my father-in-law, but after helping him install it and work with it a little bit, he found it pretty intuitive to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for practice January 8, 2013

I just wish that it was a little faster making up its mind.I haven't used it in on-line mode yet. I wish there was more explanation of the bidding conventions but I guess that is what the companion product is about.

We have versions 15, 18 and 20, but BB23 is far and above the best of them all. We love the new features and will enjoy our BB for a long, long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent May 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
Very good. A great teaching tool. However it must be done with your partner because the bidding can be significantly different from any other system.
Instructions are clear and you are taken step by step.

Warning you must have a working knowledge of bridge before using this product. Its not that it does not discuss the basics, its just that bridge is to complex to be learner using this format.

Bridge play is very good. However like all bridge games when you play with the automated partner you should learn the games bidding system to do well. Yes you select the bidding rules you are using and the better you are the better you will select, but new or intermediate players will have problems. The game is still highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Assistant to improve game June 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
Being a novice and having taken lessons this product was of immense benefit in my preparing to play duplicate bridge. Really enjoy the ability to compare both the bidding and play to how the computer plays the hand. Would recommend for anyone who wants to be a serious and competitive bridge player
