SILENT BIDDER

Device to permit silent bidding. It is a board placed in the centre of the table, subdivided into labelled regions, 1♣, 1, 1 , 1♠, 1 NT, 2♣ etc. (up to 7NT), Dbl, Redbl, Alert, Stop and Pass.

A player makes his call by touching the appropriate region of the board with a pen or pencil, or moving a small counter placed on the dumb bidder. Bidding boxes have rendered silent bidders almost obsolete.
