Within the green title bar is the Show Tip button. At any time players can click this button to toggle a text tip on or off within the game space. Tips are unique to individual hands and provide valuable instruction for star completion.
The Victory Screen has two pages. On the first page users can see their star earnings. Hovering over stars reveals the criteria by which they were obtained. Clicking the Next button leads to the second page, where users can choose to replay the hand, or proceed to either the next hand or next hidden star.
In the top right of the game space lies a box for stars. This box lists the type and number of stars hidden in each hand. To get these stars, players must complete certain objectives in the hand. For example, taking 5 tricks may award a star.
When players acquire enough stars they advance in rank, prompting the level up screen to appear. Within the window players can see the new badge that will be displayed in their profile. Visit the Profile's game rank page to see how many stars you need to reach your next rank.
The Hand Arrow buttons in the green title bar provide a quick way to navigate through hands. Clicking the left and right buttons will cycle users backward and forward respectfully. The number displays the current hand.
At the bottom right of the game space lies the Taken Tricks pile. Here tricks are represented by a single card that either stands vertical or lies horizontally. The vertical tricks are ones taken by your team. The horizontal tricks belong to the other team. You may click on a trick to view its cards in a popup box.
A hand's progress is shown through the Hand Progress icons. A new hand that hasn't been played yet will show a dotted ring. If a player has played a hand but has not won all its stars, they will see an icon with an ellipsis. A fully beaten hand with all stars acquired will show a check mark.
Within the player bars are green Player Icons. South's icon is a person, which indicates that this is your hand. The others (West, North & East) are robots. This software is designed so that you will always play with Robots as you learn the game of Bridge. Keep in mind that North is still your partner even though it is a Robot. You will work together to bid and take tricks.
Adjacent to the Victory Screen's Next button are the social sharing buttons. Pressing these buttons will allow players to share their game progress to friends on Facebook, Google Plus, and Twitter respectively. Once pressed, a new tab will open with URL links and/or editable text relating to the completed hand. Personalize your message and share your achievements across the web!
The Bidding Box appears automatically at the bottom left of the gamescreen. If a player places a bid, they will first click a number button and then a suit. Otherwise they will click the pass, double, or redouble buttons. The box closes afterwards.
On the lefthand side of the title bar is the Current Lesson. This text changes depending on the lesson that was chosen on the Map page. In this example, the user is playing a hand in the lesson titled Taking Tricks.
Below the bottom left corner of the main window' is a small box for reporting bugs. Users can press the yellow Report button to open a text window and submit an account of system bugs, errors, or crashes. A report will be sent to maintenance to look into the issue
