Megan can be a problem in the most advanced Spades
Learning to play Spades in the beginning group is very easy because the opponents are idiots and overbid no matter what they have.
The medium group is much more realistic, because Megan (your partner) actually plays like someone with some sense. The opponents are somewhat brighter, and give you some real opposition.
However...in the difficult group, your opponents suddenly turn into geniuses, and Megan turns into an idiot. So not only do you have to figure out how many tricks you can win with the lousy hands you're suddenly getting, but you must deduct at least one to two tricks because Megan without fail will overbid. This means you will also collect at least 10 bags for a 100 point deduction one or two times before the game is over.
Megan is an idiot
Your partner doesn't know how to bid her cards so you have to guess whether to over bid or under bid for your partner. You will also notice that 9 out of 10 times when it is your turn to bid you won't get single ace I your hand. Needs some work on being more realistic. The game will let you win 3 or 4 times then you lose no matter what. I bid zero for a win and Megan is holding a King of diamonds but throws a 6 of diamonds and we loose because the only diamond in my hand is a 9. Who the f--k would do that. Expecting their partner to have under a 6 card when they are carrying a king. This happens ALL THE TIME.
Easy to play....but....
The partner you play with ( yes, Megan) in one player games appears to be a complete idiot. It (he/she) trumps you when you've already won a trick, fails to take tricks when it (he/she) can and should, and sometimes appears to play cards at random, with no apparent understanding of what's going on at that point in the game. I've played with real, human partners like this in the past, but they were usually quite drunk.
Additionally, I can't see how to bid blind nil....occasionally the game asks if you want to, but apparently with no rhyme or reason.
