  • Piccolo does not exist.
  • You can bid Solo for 5 tricks.

A detailed description of the rules used on Whisthub can be found here.

Why does the AI sometimes play weird cards?

To this date there is no known algorithm that can play Colour Whist on the same level as humans. The algorithm that is developed in Whisthub mostly aims to make playing an AI sufficiently enjoyable. As such it is possible that some moves by the AI may seem weird to humans.

You will always have the best experience by playing against human players. The possibility to add AI to a game can be useful though when you don't reach four players, or you just want to play a game offline.
