Far Whist is a free card game program for playing Elevator Whist against the computer (but not on a network) with the following variations :
  1. Elevator Whist
  2. Oh Hell! (variation close to Elevator Whist)
  3. Other variations (by combining the numerous options)
  4. Romanian Whist (variation with 32 cards)

Elevator Whist is probably one of the funniest card games ever, as it creates so many surprising and spectacular situations. It is an individual game very easy to learn. And it pleases the mind by a delightful mixture of strategy and luck, of risk‑taking based on probability or simple intuition, the whole being enhanced by an intense feeling of suspense that often runs until the last card. A real treat!


Did you know that the rules of the game in Whist are almost the same as in Bridge (Whist is the ancestor of Bridge) ? To verify this, some prepared games specially designed for beginners are now available. You will have nothing to learn, you already know everything!
