Master Point Press grew out of Canadian Master Point magazine (1992-1997), which was published in Toronto, Canada by Ray and Linda Lee. The company began publishing books in 1994. While primarily interested in books on contract bridge, MPP also has published books on other games and intellectual pursuits.
In October 2020, MPP became part of the 52 Entertainment Group, a mind games specialist. The group is headquartered in France, and includes Bridge Base Online, FunBridge, Le Bridgeur, The Canasta League of America among other companies.
