Bridge is a trick-taking game using a standard 52-card deck.  It is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table.  Millions of people play bridge worldwide in clubs, tournaments, online and with friends at home, making it one of the world’s most popular card games, particularly among seniors.

Hand and Foot Card Game
Hand and Foot is a Canasta variant involving four to six decks rather than two and is played by teams of two players (usually two teams, but it also works with three or four teams).  The number of decks used is typically one more than the number of players, though this can vary.  Due to the larger pool of available cards, it is much easier to form canastas in Hand and Foot than in standard Canasta, which changes the strategy considerably.  Some players feel this version is more enjoyable for beginners.
