How "Private Multiplayer (Invite Friends)" works:
Once you touch "Invite Friends" you are put into the room, and you are the HOST. Touch "Invite Players" to send game invites via text, email or any popular messaging app on your device. Once the player receives the invite and clicks the link, they will be put into the room. When "Start Game" appears, the HOST can begin the game or invite more players.
How "Public Multiplayer (Join a Game)" works:
Once you hit "Join a Game" you are put into a room. If you are the first player in the room you are the "HOST", and can start the game whenever you like. However, the game will start automatically after the timer hits 0.
If you are not the first player in the room, you have to wait until the game is started by the "HOST" or when the timer hits 0.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this game
I love this game and I feel like more people should be playing it!! With that being said I got a few friends to download and register so that we can play but as soon as they click on link it either say” room doesn’t exist “ or it’s just a black/blank screen. After 30 minutes of trying to start a game we gave up!! Also how can I find my friend in the game and be partners with them instead of some random person other humans and or computer? And will you come out Black Spades that doesn’t have ads? Thanks for the game tho! Ima still play it bcuz it makes me think of back in the day when I got so good at spades I was offered a seat (in the park) at the grown folks table!!! 🙌🏾 mama I made it! 😂..... quick update: I just sat at a table with human people but no cards were dealt the game froze!! Can we pppllllleeeeaaassseee get an update
The way we play... BUT WAIT
When I first started playing this game, I was on full blown addict mode. I played this game night and day. During my “addiction” phase, I started noticing some things that kind of through me off. For starters, is there a reason why we can’t “purchase” anything else with our coins besides tables, “smack talk” and additional games? Maybe we could buy into higher levels of playing skill... which brings me to my next gripe.
Why is it that when you are playing single player or private multiplayer against a bot/computer, THEY ALWAYS UNDERBID OR THROW OFF HIGH NON-SPADES?! Example:
Human Team: 7 / Bot Team: 4
Beginning of hand: Human team leads with Ace of hearts, Bot 1 throws Ace of clubs
Hand 2: Human team leads with king of hearts, bot throws ace of diamonds
Typical outcome is bot gets set or makes their board. However, if bot would have thrown off a lower club or a lower diamond, bot could have counted those two aces as books or bot could have cut with spades, either way, they would have two count 2 additional books, thus making the game more strategic and skilled driven. It just seems like the bots are trying to watch out for sandbags but that option isn’t even turned on.
Yeah. Are correct. I really want you invite friend to play that way you will not have these issues as much. I’m working on more stuff to buy. Thank you!
I use to love it
When I initially downloaded this app I thought it was awesome, because I support black owned businesses and what not. But after having it for about 2 months now it’s going downhill faster than the Jamaican bobsled team in cool runnings. First off why would you charge us to go Boston? Second whenever my girlfriend and I play to win the three in a row for whatever the prize is the game freezes halfway during the third game. Why are tables really the only thing you can buy with your coins? I’m really mad that I had to leave a bad review because I don’t like leaving bad reviews about anything or any man or woman of color, but you need to get it together and step your game up ( or get off the table) “ see what I did there “
First, you still wrote the review, didn’t you 🤔. Second, we are adding more things to the game so more is coming, trust me. Third, the game can freeze for a number of reasons from memory to connection, etc. It’s hard to say but we look into all issues. Thank you for supporting.
