Spades is very similar to an Icelandic game I used to play, called 'Kani'. It is the first game I've done where there's any kind of team play going on, which made it interesting to write. I hope I've made your partner, Bill , smart enough that it's not annoying to play with him :. All the graphics used for the game I found at OpenClipArt , a great site with free graphics.
Before each round of Spades begins, each player will bid or guess how many tricks they will take. The teams then add together the total number of bids.
This is the number of tricks that team has to win in order to get a positive score. The first player to bid is the person to the left of the dealer. Bidding then continues clockwise around the table. You may bid on any number from 0 to But be smart and remember that it's very difficult to get all or even half of the tricks. A bid of zero or "nil" is another strategy we'll talk about shortly.
