How to Play
Bid on how many tricks you believe you can win with your hand and try to ensure your group bid between you and your partner is met or slightly exceeded.
Starting the Game
Press the Play button on the game welcome screen to start a game.
The welcome screen has buttons for how to play help advice, high scores, and more games.
The lower left corner of the welcome screen has a language select drop down.
The lower right corner of the welcome screen has buttons for sharing the game on social media & reading game developer information.
Use your mouse left click button to select how many tricks you believe you will be able to make before playing any cards.
Use your mouse left click button to select which card to play.
Tap the screen with a finger to choose how many tricks you believe you will be able to take & which card to play.
Players can bid to take between 0 and 13 tricks.
If you bid zero tricks that is called going nil.
If you bid zero and take any tricks you lose 100 points.
If you bid zero and take zero tricks you score 100 points.
Other than when you go nil your trick bid is summed with your partners and you are scored together as a team.
This means if your partner bids 3 and you bid 4 then you would still meet the bid requirement if the partner took 6 tricks and you took 1.
If you score more tricks than you bid the extra tricks are called bags and are scored as 1 point each.
When you get 10 bags 100 points are subtracted from your score.
Missing your bid
If you and your partner bid a combined 7 tricks but only take 6 you’ve failed to meet your bid goal & you score -10 for every trick you bid, meaning you would lose 70 points on the hand.
In general it is best to bid about 1 trick less than how many you think you can take, so that if something does not go your way you can still make your bid.
You can bid aggressive with Aces, King protected with a lower suited card, and for hands where you have few or no of one suit and many Spades.
If you are about to win the game and do not have many bags it makes sense to bid more conservatively.
If you have many bags it can make sense to bid more aggressively.
When you go nil with a human partner your partner will read your cards and play based off of them. For instance, if they see you discard a number of low cards in a suit they might keep playing that suit. Further, they will typically throw higher valued cards out so that it is easy for you to get under them.
The computer teammate in this game does not play the way a human teammate would when you go nil & that often leads to you getting shredded.
This game is perhaps the opposite of our other Spades card game, where in the other game the computer opponents make going nil quite easy.
If your opponent bids nil you will generally want to lay low cards in suits you believe they still have so you can try to get them to take a trick.
You typically do not want to take tricks from your partner unless you have a great next lay or you already met your joint bid goal and you are trying to get rid of trick winning cards.
If you pay attention to which cards have been thrown you can see when some players do not have certain suits.
Leading a suit you know your partner does not have gives them flexibility.
Leading a suit a competitor does not have gives them flexibility.
Pay attention to your group bid between your partner and you.
If your partner has taken many more tricks than they bid and you still have many strong cards in your hand you will want to lay low to come just under winning tricks.
Alternatively, if some of the cards you felt were sure tricks are used without earning a trick and/or your partner is low on reaching their trick goal you will want to be aggressive in trying to ensure you earn enough tricks.
If you are close to winning the game but already have many bags you will also often want to lay off to come under on some tricks.
Winning vs losing
The first team to 500 points at the end of a hand wins.
If both teams reach 500 points on the same hand then the team with the higher score wins the game.
The game is suited for players who like Mahjong Solitaire tile matching games.
The game has no adult themed content.
