Throughout the years bridge has evolved numerous times to become the most popular card game in the world. One failed transformation was five-suit bridge. The fifth 13-card suit added to the standard deck was known as the green suit because of its color. It was also called “eagles” in America, “leaves” in Austria and “crowns” or “royals” in England. The game was played by dealing each of the four players 16 cards and placing the remaining cards face up in the center of the table. These cards were called the “widow.” Once the dummy was exposed, the declarer was entitled to exchange any card in his or the dummy for the widow. While there were several books written about the game, it never achieved lasting popularity.
