Descrizione

The finest of all sedentary games. But Whist, as it is often played, without any knowledge or appreciation of the real nature of the game, seems to have nothing making it better worth playing than Pope Joan or Beggar my Neighbour, and, to be decidedly inferior to Euchre. There is an intermediate kind of Whist, the game played by persons who have a keen perception of the strategy of the game, but no knowledge of its language, which may be full of interest or full of annoyance, as the cards may happen to lie. To watch a proficient in this kind of Whist, playing a good hand, and ably supported by a steady-going partner who understands his ways, one would say Whist was the most delightful of all games; but to see him playing an average hand, to note his wrath when his partner, considering his own hand, fails to play precisely as he wishes, one would say Whist.
