This antique book contains a detailed guide to playing 'Solo Whist', complete with simple instructions and information on tactics. 'Solo Whist', also known as 'Solo', is a card game that evolved from the 17th-century Spanish game 'Ombre', originally based on the English game of 'Whist'. One player usually plays against three other players. However, players can form temporary alliances where two players play against the other two if 'Prop and Cop' is the current bid. Ideal for the beginner and experienced player alike, this book makes for a worthy addition to collections of such literature and is not to be missed by the discerning card game enthusiast. This text has been elected for modern republication due to the timeless nature of the information contained within it, and we are proud to republish this text now complete with a new introduction on card games.
