The card sharks are back!

This time they've picked up the game of Spades. Prepare to get set as they use their incredible AI to make all their bids.

We've developed some new technology to help you this time. You can adjust the intelligence of your opponents. They might not be too challenging at a low level, but beware turning them all the way up! You also won't be alone this time. One of the robots has defected and will be your partner as you try and take your tricks in Spades!

Features include
• Score tracking while you play.
• Randomized computer names.
• Keeps track of your match history.
• Saved game states.
• Set winning score to play a quicker or longer game
• Set a timer to limit a game to a set time period

If you like card games you can also play hearts against suspiciously similar characters in Hearts HD from Blue Frog Gaming.

Many hours of fun!

The play on this game is one of the best that I've seen.
The blocking out of ineligible suits is well thought out and creative.
The distribution of cards is pretty true to life.
The sound that indicates that Spades are broken is great.
And the ads are delightfully unobtrusive.

As a possible update, I would suggest that the scoring should be better explained in the Help section.
I had to play many a game to figure out why points got deducted.

Recently, the program lost all sound.
I've looked in the settings and combed through the system preferences to rectify this - even restored my iPad to correct this - to no avail. Any suggestions?

scoring bugs

I play this a lot, just mindless fun
however, when bidding nil, I take tricks when I play low card.
Sometimes this just irks me so much. having to put up with the dumb partners is one thing... I usually have to add up the bids if possible.. and deduct from my hand as the partner is an idiot or the bid process is relying to much on point values, nothing for card distribution. if I have 8 hearts in hand, that means 5 in the other three, but dumb partner does not take this into consideration and we lose while the computer plays tricks back and forth. so a lot of work needs to be done to get this past the toy stage. Hearts is much more advanced in this aspect. love the game, hate the bugs

Great, unless you like to bid nil

I enjoy this game. I don't have the problem with scoring. For every 10 bags, you lose 100 points and bags reset. Scoring has been fine. My only complaint is that my partner will not cover a nil bid, when it turns out he had the cards to do so. The instructions say this is a partner game, but clearly nil is an individual bid. Other than that, I am happy with this app!

Still no fix for the lack of partner logic on nil. Please fix!
