The classic game of whist is a plain-trick game without bidding for 4 players in fixed partnerships. There are four players in two fixed partnerships. Partners sit facing each other. A standard 52 card pack is used. The cards in each suit rank from highest to lowest:
A K Q J 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2.
The player to the dealer's left leads to the first trick. Any card may be led. The other players, in clockwise order, each play a card to the trick. Players must follow suit by playing a card of the same suit as the card led if they can; a player with no card of the suit led may play any card. The trick is won by the highest trump in it - or if it contains no trump, by the highest card of the suit led. The winner of a trick leads to the next.
When all 13 tricks have been played, the side which won more tricks scores 1 point for each trick they won in excess of 6.
The partnership which first reaches 7 points wins the game.

    This game is pitiful. No options to bid and motion of cards is very very slow.

    I have always loved the game of whist but whoever developed this game did not know the game. I can put up with not getting any trump for many games in a row, but when my partner cannot play the game correctly, it is very frustrating. When she throws away a king on my ace and has a small card the next lead,it is really aggravting,and other stupid things that happen every hand, I am ready to QUIT!

    The game plays well. But the AI sucks big time. My partner played a king RIGHT AFTER THE OTHER TEAM PLAYED AN ACE. Then on the very next trick it PLAYED A FOUR. If I could have I would have strangled my partner. Other times I know we could have won if it were not for a stupid AI. Please. It's a nice game and I would really like to play it. Except for the frustration.

    I wish for once a developer actually knew how to play the game they develop it is not random like they claim played over 50 games , and 70% of the time I would only 2 or 3 trump and those were low. My partner would always take my trick then lead back with trump or something ridiculous or not take a trick when they could. It is ridiculous that they can't get it right. I have yet to find a card gam

    The gameplay is generally good, but a few times I have seen two players play the same card (usually nine of clubs) and there is often a no trumps hand which, under my understanding, don't form part of the game of whist traditionally. The partners play unrealistically.
