Hi Amanda. It's a long time since I played rubber bridge, but if I remember correctly a rubber is won by the first side to score two games. A game is won by a side which accumulates at least 100 points below the line (for tricks contracted for and made). Once a game has been scored, a line is drawn beneath the scores and "below the line" scoring starts afresh.
In this respect it is similar to a three-set tennis match in which the first side to score two sets wins the match.
I hope this helps rather than confuses, any form of bridge scoring is not easy to explain in a paragraph of text, it's something that's much more easily learned by doing.
