[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - GOTO Games, creator of the globally popular bridge card game Funbridge - which features over 60,000 players and more than 110,000 deals per day - has introduced Facebook integration in the app's latest version. Now in Funbridge 2.5, players can connect directly their Facebook account and share results and messages with their social network. They can also enjoy a wide range of features that have helped make the app acclaimed by bridge lovers of all ages around the world, including:
* New daily tournaments that launch every two hours
* Fun and challenging ranking tournaments
* A comprehensive ranking system that assigns players to series, which have an increasing degree of difficulty
* Unlimited training deals
* Searchable player profiles
* The option to view and bid again, plus ever player's play of the hand
* Per pairs and IMP notation tournaments
* Pre-set bidding conventions
* In-game help with bidding (displaying points and assumed distribution of colors)
* The ability to follow specific players and receive requests from friends
* A filter that displays the ranking of only followed players and friends
"Funbridge is an incredibly fun bridge game that is already a huge hit worldwide, and is essentially the planet's biggest bridge club," commented Valentin Foncez of GOTO Games. "Players love how they can play some deals, and see how they rank among their friends or among thousands of players who have played the same deals, in the same conditions. And now with Facebook integration, players can connect with their friends and social network."
In addition, Funbridge can help players improve and sharpen their overall bridge game.
"Players have the option to replay the deals of other players, replay their own deals, and follow the development of scores in real-time," added Foncez. "By comparing themselves to their peers, and by seeing how others are playing, Funbridge is an ideal learning tool - and it's so much fun!"
Players can also look forward to a new and exciting "Challenge Mode," which will allow them to challenge their friends directly through the app. This enhanced feature is currently in development, and should be released later in 2013.
