First Steps

In preparation for SteamCon I am putting together an information sheet about the game of Whist. Here is the outline I’ve put together, which is also a list of upcoming posts on this blog. If there are any other areas you think I should cover please let me know.

  1. The History of Whist
  2. Terminology of the Game
  3. Rules of the Game
  4. Table Etiquette
  5. Basic Strategy
  6. The Seattle Whist Club
  7. Whist in Literature

After SteamCon I plan on writing more about each of these areas and working to set up some Whist tournaments for interested players.

For Your Honors

This is just a quick first post.  Your humble narrator has the honor of teaching the game of Whist at the upcoming SteamCon II convention in Seattle.  I love the game of Whist and think it would be a blast to gather a group of others who like to play for regular games and perhaps even tournaments.

So I've decided to start this blog to promote the club, the game and share it with the world.
