Spades is a trick-taking card game that can be played with 3 players solo, 4 players solo, or 4 players with partners (2 teams of 2). A standard 52-card deck is dealt, then players bid the number of tricks they can take. The goal is to take as many tricks as were bid. When playing with partners, North/South is one team, West/East is the other, and teammates' bids and tricks are combined, so one player's underbid can compensate for his teammate's overbid.
This app allows you to configure number of players and teams, the appearance of the table and cards, rules about nil bids and when spades can be lead. There are instructions included in the app, as well as a setting to make your robot opponents less aggressive or more aggressive.
Spades Gold edition has no advertising and no in-app purchases. It includes several card back and tabletop options that are not available in the ad-supported edition.
Smarter robot trick play when other players have bid nil. New options in Settings.
Ratings and Reviews
I recently realized that I hadn’t played Spades in a while so I went to the App Store. After seeing the game I used to play I remembered why I hadn’t played in a long time.
IMO this is a very good game. It’s not perfect but neither am I. I’m not much for online play so one of the other games meant be better for you.
The only thing I think might be missing is when a game is over it immediately wants to start a new game without giving you the option of making any changes. A small quibble.
First, you need to understand the concept of spades - obviously no one there does. Your partner should never set their partner by hanging on to the ace of spades; even if it sets their partner! You are not playing with a partners; it’s every man for himself!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is so rigged. Even your bot partner cheats for the other side. The bot over bids so if you’re winning you still lose. I get 2 low spades and East/West get 10 spades. I’m so sorry I paid for this.
