Meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month @ 10.30 - 12.30 initially at the conveners home
Contract whist is a game for 4 people who play as individuals. It follows the principal of all whist games where tricks are won by either the highest card of the suit or a trump. All cards are dealt so each has 13 and then players declare how many tricks they will win - " the contract ". However the final person to declare has to make the total above or below 13 so somebody always has to lose. !! This is where the game becomes competitive. It is however intended to be fun and not taken too seriously. A full explanation of the rules of our version will be given.
