Join Bridge Winners
Two Colors or Four

I know his has been polled before on various forums, but can't recall anything since I've been posting on Bridgewinners. Should the ACBL [edit*] and other Bridge organizations encourage the use of cards which use four colors or some difference in shading/fill pattern to distinguish the four suits? Many bidding boxes do this; most software does not. I'm 62 and personally find it frustrating how difficult it is to tell hearts from diamonds on cards and clubs from spades on software. (Bifocals hurt my neck, can't use them.)

*Removed EBU per Gordon Rainsford's comment. Perhaps I should've started with a survey of current practice! Edited poll answers to simply two or four.

Use two colors.
Use four colors or differential shading.
Don't care.
Other.
