Play Multiplayer Whist Online! Whist is played with 4 players - 2 teams of 2. 13 cards are dealt to each player from a standard 52 card deck. The final card dealt, which is to the dealer, is turned face up and determines which suit is trump. Cards are ranked from 2 (lowest) to Ace (highest). On your turn, you must play a card that is the same suit as the first card played. If you have no cards of that suit, you can play any card. The highest card played takes the trick, unless a trump-suit card is played, which can be played if you have no more cards of the same suit as the lead-off card. Earn points each hand as a team for making more than 6 tricks. For example, if you and your partner take 9 tricks, you will earn 3 points (9-6=3). The game is over when a team reaches 7 points.
