Important to Know: What is Court Whist?
The game of whist may not be as popular a game as it used to be, Bridge really managed to take its place, but still, this delightful game is simple to understand and generally a fun way to pass some time with friends. Whist continues to be played widely in Britain, often in local tournaments called “whist drives”.
Whist is a game of strategy and can be rather amusing. Whist is a plain trick game, where 4 players, paired off in partners, try to win as many tricks as they can. It is similar to Bridge because it involves four players broken into teams of two. However, it is much easier to play.
