How "Private Multiplayer" works:
Once you touch "Invite" 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" works:
Once you hit "Public" 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.

Great concept, lots of missing pieces


First, thank you for creating the closest thing to real spades. I applaud your effort because this game is actually fun but has lots of flaws.

1. The computer is trash, several times I had an 8 or lower walk when a suite is first played.

2. No 10 for 200? What's the point of even bidding 10?

3. The computer doesn't play to win. When you bid high and try to bleed spades, your computer partner will let books walk trying to hold onto the big joker.

4. The computer constantly underbids. I've had hands where my team
Bid board and the computer bid 5 and they got 9.

5. 3 over books in a hand should be a shot.

6. Back to back shots should be game over.

7. You should be able to go blind anything 6 and above.

8. You should have the option of making board 5.

Just a few observations.

Good luck!

Great feedback and thanks for playing. The game is still a baby, and we have many updates to come that will address a lot of the points you made. In your style of playing can you define "a shot"? I want to make sure I fully understand what you are saying. People from every location have different terms for the same thing when it comes to this game. Thank you for that rating.

Great game, but...


I am back to loving this game! Only thing missing is the a paid version. I hate adds so I definitely dwell pay for an ad free version!!!!!

Developer Response

Welcome back! We are glad to see you. How much should an ad free version cost? And thank you for those stars!

Does not work on iPhone X


Love the app play it all the time. Happy the developer is still showing it love and updated it. Unfortunately the 2.0 update crops the game and makes it unplayable on the iPhone X.

Developer Response

We are working on a fix for that very soon. We will continue to try new things and update the app. You support is much welcomed.
