The rules used for Manille on Whisthub are the standard rules with four people, in other words two fixed teams of two players. Manille is played with 32 cards, the so-called picket cards, where
10 is the highest card, followed by
A K Q J 9 8 7. Points are scored by winning tricks that contain cards worth a number of points and the trump suit is always chosen by the dealer. A detailed description of the rules can be found on this page.
In multiplayer mode, a full set is played by default, which means that the first team to reach 101 points is the winner. With a premium subscription you can also adjust the length of a set, for example 61, 121 or 151. You can also set it to play a fixed number of deals instead of a fixed number of points. This is also how the tournaments are played.
Note that when you play alone against the computer, the game essentially lasts indefinitely. Hence you get to decide yourself how long you want to continue playing. After all, computer players never get tired of the game!
Whisthub is created by Sebastiaan Marynissen. The idea to create a website dedicated to Colour Whist was born during his higher education and was initially meant as a learning experience. In the meantime, Whisthub has become a website where you can play various card games online, such as Colour Whist, Manille, Wiezen, Barbu King and Hearts.
The website is incorporated in a private company Whisthub BV with company number 0746.750.441 and is currently under active development. The goal is to create a vibrant community where passionate players can meet eachother: young or old, beginner or expert! In case you have any questions you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whisthub is dedicated to Bert Marynissen, the man who taught me not to lead the Queen, but above all the best father a son could wish for.
