The Common Game Deals

Benefits of Using The Common Game Deals: 

  • Encourage players to play more often at clubs.
  • Reduce redundant Board preparation efforts.
  • Offer postmortem analysis of hands.
  • Smaller Clubs have an opportunity to participate in a larger field

Are The Common Game Hands truly random?

A: Yes they are truly random. This is a common misperception since many players are often used to relatively "flat" hands produced in typical shuffle and deal games. We use the industry standard utility Bridge Composer which does not provide any options for attenuating or manipulating hand distributions. In addition, we are using the open source utlity "Big Deal" (an option inside Bridge Composer) to generate the actual hands. These hands are added to our library and NEVER touched thereafter.  For complete analysis, please see http://thecommongame.com/CGRandomHandFAQ.html
