Normal Bridge rules, except that each person has a hand from a different deal. Might actually be better with Solo Whist rules, but Whist of Frankenstein doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
As angel notes, cards would often repeat - if the same card is played twice or more on the same trick,
then the first card played takes precedence.

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||If each hand is from a different deal, there's a far better than evens chance that many cards will appear two, three, or even four times. Does my 9 of spades beat your 9 of spades?
A pun looking for an idea, methinks.
||Play it with Tarot cards ?
||"We were playin' a game o' Five Card Tarot, pentacles wild! I saw 'im deal a High Priestess from the bottom of the deck, when..."
||Um, that's *Bridge*, Mobius, not Poker.
||Interesting game, adding more uncertainty to actually playing out the hand, though there does need to be a way to break ties. Perhaps a tie gets won by the winner of the next trick (but what about the final trick), or by whomever played first/last?
||No ties possible (as noted, the first card played wins when the same card is played again).
