Bridge is a partnership game. Trust, communication and patience are the essential attributes of winning at bridge. For a student, the strategy part teaches them math, logic, and interpretive skills. The partnership part teaches them to respect and trust their partner.
It's an elegant game, full of strategy and tactics. It's part science, part math, part logic, part reason. But a huge component of bridge is also very human. This melding of the former with the latter is what sets bridge apart, not only from other card games, but also from board games like chess. While computers can now routinely beat all but a handful of chess grandmasters, they can't come close to outplaying the world's finest bridge players. Why is this? Because computers can understand math, but they can't understand people.
