Agatha Christie Wiki

Contract bridge, or simply bridge, is a trick-taking card game using a standard 52-card deck. In its basic format, it is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table.

The card game is played (and often used as a plot device) in several stories by Agatha Christie. It is often used so that one character is the dummy (The partner of the declarer. Dummy's cards are placed face up on the table and played by the declarer. Dummy has few rights and may not participate in choices concerning the play of the hand.). This means that the character can leave the table while the other three players remains seated for the rest of the hand.
