Rubber Bridge Score Pad – Emporium
The Simon Lucas Rubber Bridge Score Pad – Emporium – is a smart score pad containing 50 double-sided score cards for rubber bridge. Firstly, we print our score cards on quality 135gsm card. Then we make them into a pad with a back board to lean on and cover to keep them clean. A pad keeps the score cards neat and tidy. Furthermore, the score sheets don’t get tatty as they aren’t loose.
The score cards are made from 135gsm card so you can either give each player their own pad or a single score card. Alternatively you can put the score cards into our score card holders. Moreover, each bridge score pad – Emporium – contains 50 double-sided score cards, which is 100 games per pad. Overprinted with gold ink, this score pad is exceptionally smart.
The score cards measure approximately W8.2 x L19.4cm.
Rubber bridge is played by two competing pairs of players. Three games of bridge are played and a rubber is a ‘best-of-three’ competition. Play proceeds until one pair wins 100 or more points to win that game. There is a horizontal line dividing the Rubber Bridge Score Cards which is used when scoring. The winning bid’s value (tricks that are bid and made) is scored below the line, and bonus points such as overtricks are scored above the line.
The winning pair is generally the first pair to win two games. On our Rubber Bridge Score Cards, all three games that make up a rubber are scored on one side of the score cards, so you get a whopping 100 rubbers/300 games from just one pad!
While the basic elements of scoring are similar to Chicago or ‘four-deal’ bridge, their method of accumulation and recording differ slightly, and honours do score. We include scoring tables for both Rubber and Chicago bridge in our Contract Indicator and Scoring Aid.
