Going nil + Partner dumping trump
Like the game but would like to request an update to the partner program to be more realistic. Some key plays could be won if my partner would play a better card. The better card is played 1 or 2 hands later. Would be nice if the program could pick the best card to play for the partner hand.
Example 1: I would play a 10 and my partner could have covered with a K or A but would play a lower card b/c other team played lower than a 10 as well.
Example 2: my partner would dump an A on a different suit play when it would have been better to have held onto it to provide cover for the remainder of the hand.
Example 3:. My partner will play trump once they make their bid. This doesn't make sense. Why would my partner start dumping trump once they make their bid if their partner hadn't made their bid yet?. For the opponent to do this is reasonable, but not your partner.
Example 4: I trump and win the hand but my partner will trump me. Didn't make sense to throw away another trump when the hand is already won.
Please fix 🙏
Nothing has changed
I played spades with “real” people a few weeks back and I forgot how fun that was, so I thought that I would give this game another go...I just need to realize that computers will never be “people”. And I absolutely agree with the other reviewers that say it’s basically three against one. You should have the option to play solo. And view your cards before bidding nil. (You can do that when playing with real people so why not on the app?) Also, it is so irritating when just as my team is able to win, my cards become impossibly difficult to bid anything but 20 or 30 I don’t receive any aces or kings until my opponents have finally won. And my “partner” conveniently forgets about the trump cards or the slough cards in its possession. What a joke...
Best of the Spade games, but if you are weak in the strategy then ....
Practically win every game, but if I’m lacks on the proper techniques of spades, then the wins are hard to come buy.
Most human opponents save their spade cards and end up going over their bid. In other words, when the bid is made, it’s not the time to hoard the spades that will penalize you for going over your bid. I like the games tough on computer and in person. Like Cribbage, I’ve only lost a dozen games in 60 years of playing with humans, and eventually with computers.
The tougher the better. Playing weak programming is like racing a two year old child, and dancing for joy when never beaten. Sorry for the long review, but good games are hard to come bye. Hard competition is never boring.
Remember to thank the game when your partner over trumps you to keep your side from constantly going over your bids.
