Play Whe Marks

What we now call Play Whe was once known as Chinapoo, a numbers game played by persons who where influenced by intutition , superstition, dreams and caprice which was originally brought to Trinidad and Tobago by Chinese immigrants, and traditionally called "Whe Whe".

The game has since been creolised, acquiring words (marks) like Jamette (No. 16 : Low Class Man or Woman), Crapaud (No. 13 Frog), and  Corbeau (No. 11: Vulture).  The Symbol of Play Whe is a drawing of the Chinaman jumbie, or Chinapoo. His anatomy is divided into 36 segments, each marked with a mark, partner or spirit number.
