In some card games, such as whisks, withholding a card of the current suit. In other words, when the pile is hearts you must play a heart if you have one, when the pile is spades you must play a spade etc. Reneging is when you break this rule by playing a different card. This results in losing 2 tricks or automatically losing the game.
-How the hell do you have a spade?
-What?
-Last round was spades and you put down a heart!
-Oh...
-You reneged!
