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.

No scoring, AI is ok
The lack of accumulated scoring is tough to play with. The partner does not play to the team score or to set the opponent, it plays to it's own bid. Almost too consistent amount of 0 bids that none of the AI knows how to play against.
I love this game
except the score starts over with each hand - so enjoyable it’s not a big deal. I like that it’s possible to win often especially with the option to redeal your hand if don’t like the 200 point blind nil or don’t like a hand without trump. Nice graphics. My ‘partner’ is great - plays according to my level but is usually better than me. Encouraging, challenging game! The hands are so much fun that it is hard to stop playing.
Cannot see score
The game plays easily, but does not show the score or allow end score to be set, so it seems like you are playing endlessly. Does not allow passing cards to partner with nil bid.
