Here is my best explanation:

'catch crossing over the road?' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'game of' is the wordplay.
'game' becomes 'contract' (contract is a kind of game).
'of' becomes 'bridge' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
'contract'+'bridge'='CONTRACT BRIDGE'
