I reckon it's more of a bidding book that you might want than a cardplay book, Plum. Perhaps (excuse my boldness in suggesting) a basic standard English Acol book might be good. It's a reasonably natural system, so it would put you in pretty good stead to play socially. It has minimal conventional bids (other than a weak no trump) in most non-slam contracts.

I'd lend you mine (which cost the princely sum of less than a fiver from the nice shop called something like "The Bridge and Chess Shop" on the Euston Rd. They will send books by post and postage is minimal), but I have to keep picking it up and revisiting bits all the time myself as I can't quite get it to stick in my little brain.

...if you press it, they will come.

no we didn't play.
but I'm still looking forward to next time.
'Acol for begginners' (can't remember the exact title etc) is a good book, you can get it from the Compendia game shop in Greenwhich Market (or probably any good book store).

So, it's going to happen on 16 June. Useful to know who plans to come, and at what time. We have two round tables which should be suitable, but would need to borrow a third if there will be more than six, excluding us. Can provide some food and drink. And, tables permitting, am happy to extend the invitation to lurkers.

Used to have a beginner's Acol but it disappeared about 7 house moves ago. It sounds like others are getting serious. Are we playing for anything?

Any takers for 16 June. Otherwise it looks like a game of patience for me.

Sorry Sarah. Forgot about bridge. I'd love to come, and could make any time after about 7:30 - 7:45. If you're coming tonight, then we can talk about it then perhaps?

...if you press it, they will come.

Unfortunately I'm still feeling really poorly so I'll have to give it a miss this time (wouldn't want to give you all my lurgie) but I'm definitely up for next month. Have a great time!
