Play the classic trick-taking card game. Lead with your strongest suit and work with your partner to get 2 points per hand. Whist is a classic English trick-taking card game which was played widely in the 18th and 19th centuries. Whist derives from the 16th century game of Trump or Ruff, via Ruff and Honors. Although rules of Whist are extremely simple, there is enormous scope for scientific play.
A standard 52 card pack is used. The Whist cards in each suit rank from highest to lowest: A K Q J 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2. Whist is played by four players, who play in two partnerships with the partners sitting opposite each other. Whist players cut or draw cards to determine partners with the two highest playing against the lowest two, who have seating rights. The players then cut for deal. It is strictly against the rules of Whist to comment on the cards in any way. One may not comment upon the hand one was dealt nor about one's good fortune or bad fortune. One may not signal to one's partner. whist, whist game, whist online, whist card, free whist.

This Whist game program involving 1 human player and 3 computer players is not reflective of a TRUE game. In fact it's flawed. 90% of the time, when Trumps come up. you (the player) get only 1 or 2 or 3 Trump cards, hardly more. Furthermore, all best cards are most often given to the computer's opponent team. The odds of winning a game are about then 10 to 1 at best. I played with 3 human players in many social evenings ; the odds dropped down to 4-to 1 on average for each team most of the time. If you want to have a better chance at winning a Whist gGme, play with your friends or family. Furthermore, the program doesn't allow you to play the No Trumps variant, which is a lot more fun.
The whist game we have here is only one of the many variants (check these out on Wiki). It would be nice if Games.com offered three or four of the most popular ones like they did for poker.

What happen to the Top Ten Board? I can not find it. Hope they have not gotten rid of that. One of the main reason of playing.
