Minibridge is a great way to introduce new players to the wonderful game of bridge. Teachers can use it to teach their students some of bridges key concepts. Assessing your hand, declaring, and playing as a pair, to name a few.
It has a very simplified version of bidding too, where players state how many high card points they have. It's much easier to learn than bridge, but is still a great game in its own right. Many bridge players started out with mini-bridge. It's a gateway into our world!
