Learning to Play on the Real Bridge Site

The idea of playing Real Bridge online might seem a bit intimidating, but it is actually quite easy to get the hang of if your device is set up properly.  Lots of people have absolutely no problem and get going immediately when playing in their first ever session.  There are several things you can do to get ready to play bridge online using the Real Bridge platform and to make your first experience an enjoyable one.

Online Training Guide

There is some very good training material on the Real Bridge site.  It is worth having a look at this and reading through the player guide in detail, and more than once.  This will show you what the various screens look like and give you a very good idea what to expect.

To access the Real Bridge Players guide click on this link --->  guide

Training Sessions

We will be running training sessions at some of the clubs during late January.  At these sessions we will run a brief live demonstration of a bridge game using Real Bridge.  We can also run through the pleyer guide in detail and answer any questions that you have.  

Testing Your Device

Real Bridge makes use of the microphone and camera on your device.  It is a good idea to test these prior to playing on Real Bridge.  You can run a test by clicking on this link --->  Camera and Audio test

Do not leave this test to the last minute. It may be a good idea to test your device prior to the training sessions.  Then if you get stuck with this we could try and assist you to sort out an issue if you bring the device along to one of the training sessions.  Note when you run the test you may be asked to confirm that  oceania.realbridge.online can use your microphone and camera - click Allow to enable this.

More Technical Stuff

Real Bridge works with most modern up to date browsers and on most devices, but some devices and browsers work better than others.  (and some older browsers don't work at all)

There is some info about this on the Real Bridge website / FAQs ---> FAQs

Auckland Bridge Club has also published some technical guidance on their website / Real Bridge page.  It might be worthwhile having a quick look at this if you are not sure about your device/ browser   --->  Auckland Real Bridge Page Note the tech info can be found if you scroll down to the bottom of this page
