Bridge of Frankenstein

Played using hands from different deals

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.

       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 ?

       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).
