About Classic Whist
Whist is a simple partnership trick-taking card game. While the rules of the game are simple, it takes good strategic thinking and teamwork to master.
Work with your AI partner to outwit your opponents in this fast and fun card game.
It's a great game for learning trick-taking card games and Whist games of all types, but challenging enough when switched to hard mode to keep you entertained! In this version you can set your preferred win target, choose to play with or without 'honours', and set the AI level to easy or hard. There are also many colour themes and decks to choose from to keep the landscape interesting!

How To Play
If you are playing a game with the honour bonus turned on, honours are claimed after the trick points are calculated. If a team is dealt all four honours (A, K, Q and J) in the trump suit for the round, they are awarded 4 bonus points. If a team is dealt three of the four honours, they are awarded 2 bonus points. If the honours are shared evenly between the two teams then no bonus points are awarded.
You cannot win a game with honour bonus alone. If your team is 2 points away from victory and you were dealt all four honours, you would only receive one bonus point. The final point required for victory must come from trick points.
