Tommy's Whist is a shareware, single-player version of partnership whist. This is a game for four players, two teams of two, the player plays as the north chair and the computer plays the other three hands.

This is a trick taking game that is played with a standard fifty-two card deck. A match consists of a series of games. Any partnership scoring more than seven tricks scores game points for each additional trick and winning a game scores the winning pair match points. The game has many options that can be used to customise game play, these include:
  • A game ends when one team scored xx game points where xx is between five and ninety-nine

  • A match ends when a partnership has scored cored xx match points where xx is between eight and nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine

  • Partnerships that win a game will score honours points if they have three of four of the Ace, King, Queen and Jack of the trump suit. Honours points can be disabled

  • Trumps can be determined by the last card dealt, selected randomly by the computer, announced by the first player to play a card, or the game can be played without trumps

  • There's an option to replay a hand
The game is entirely keyboard controlled. It has basic sound effects, a demo mode and command line switches to start the game with sound turned off and to force either a colour or monochrome display.
