Introduction

What is Whist?

Whist is a card game. It can be played with a regular deck of cards, and is usually play with four players, split into two teams of two. Whist is a trick-taking game. The two teams play against each other to take the most tricks and score the most points. The team with the highest score wins the round.

History of Whist

There are many variations to the origins of Whist, as there are with most old games, but we will discuss the likely origins of this popular game. Let’s dive into the history of Whist (or Whistory, as I like to call it).

The most popular origin story is from a 16th-century game known as Trump, or Triumph, though there are earlier games which may have had an influence on these games. The game Ruff & Honours is also an early influence on the game of Whist.

In the 17th century, the game of Whist began to become more popular. The name came from the word Whist, or Wist, which can mean quiet or silent. Silence is a big part of the game (as you will see). It is said that Edmond Hoyle was a big fan of the game, even tutoring some players in the finer mechanics of the card game. Through his teaching and books, the popularity of the game grew.

In the 19th century, Whist was seen as the intellectual card game in the Western world. Partnership Whist (played with four players) is now the preferred method of play, though there are variations of the game. Whist remains most popular in Britain, though it is popular across the world.
