Play Spades, a card game all about bids, blinds and bags, for free on Games.com. Play online alone or multiplayer with a friend in this four player trick taking classic This is one of the best Spades games online that you can find. Spades is a partnered trick-taking card game in which the object is for each pair or partnership to take the least number of tricks they bid on before play begins. Spades is a descendant of the Whist family of card games, which includes Bridge, Hearts, and Oh, Hell. The major difference with Spades is instead of trumps being decided by the highest bidder or at random, the spade suit is always trump, hence the name “Spades”. CHEATS & TIPS Seat Positions Matter A two-bid hand in the first position could be a nil hand in the second. In the second seat, a hand may be a two-bid and in the fourth it would have to be a three or four-bid. Carefully consider all the information you have at hand before making your bid. If you’re in the second seat, you should think about the bid that is already on the table, what cards you’re holding, and the score before bidding. A bidder in the fourth seat, however, has a wealth of information at hand for their bid. Paying attention to your position before making your bid makes a big difference in the outcome of the game. Lead High Non-Spades Early, Save High Spades Late As high a card as it may seem, you have to remember that any non-spade can be trumped. If you play the Ace of Diamonds on the first round of diamonds, it probably won’t be beaten. But on the fourth round of diamonds, it probably will. High Spades, however, cannot be trumped. Holding the Ace of Spades is crucial to keeping the lead in the game. If you play your Ace, you relinquish control to the King of Spades, then the Queen of Spades, etc. Bait Out the Ace of Spades If you don't have the Ace of Spades, you may think that you are already out of the game, but you may still have a shot. If you have the King or Queen of Spades, force the player with the Ace to waste it. Generally, drop lower spade cards to force out the higher ones. If you play a higher spade, the other players may play lower spades, and then you grab a bag. If you lead a Queen or King spade like this, the spades will flood and any player with just a single spade (hopefully that evil Ace) will have to part with it. If All Else Fails, Go Blind When you fall far behind and a player comes close to winning, you may need to go blind (bet without checking your cards), so that you can double your points for that hand. This could be your last shot at winning, and at worst, you would have lost anyways.

Where is the 'ignore" button.  It's probably right in my face but I can't seem to find it.

Well Manny we have both here and more. We do have really bad players some new and the sad part is players that say they have been here a long time have not a clue. But it is their right to play knowing they will never get better at spades. I just wish players could only get into certain rooms with a percentage of game wins and a certain number of games played to even get to that point. If you game win average is higher and once you have played a certain number of games to show you should be in a better room we would all be happier. Mainly because the people who harass us never win many games just get upset at us for them losing games. Spades is a game that takes much memory to play correctly or develop a method of cheating which I have saw many doing here. How could they be proud of that and they are only fooling themselves. This has been posted many times and nothing changes. As for class Manny you don't need class to be a good person only a good mother and father to teach you values. Ones that teach you just because a person does things doesn't mean it is right or you should do the same but to take others peoples feeling into consideration and care how you make them feel. You feeling is not the only feeling and giving to others does return to you in many ways.

I am also rather new to this site and as of this moment not really that thrilled with it i have met 2 very nice players in Geegi oh my i hope i spelled that right if not i apologize G and pam hickman 2 very nice and very  laid back players who were so fun to play with but since then mostly rude and foul mouthed people I am sure there are a lot more nice players out there i just have to locate them lol  am retired from the Winter Park Police Dept. 24 years my Wife a retired school teacher. We have since moved 10 miles down the road to Orlando but wow what a difference in crazyiness We are looking at Daytona Beach we both love racing although they only come there twice a year we have a son that lives there and want to be closer. But thanks to a player i played with last night i have learned how to use the ignore button very nice feature lol. I just play to relax and maybe just maybe meet some real nice people and have fun. Trust me there are people from all walks of life playing here and they all have a story some good some not so good but dont judge them unless you know them personally and besides its not your place to judge anyone regardless only 1 person that has that right. So let him be the judge the rest of us should just play the game and have a good time win or lose its a game people enjoy it. Dont hate!! i have heard some horrible thiongs said to players in the short time i have played here very uncool as a Law officer i have seen the highs and lows everyday a lot of hate and a lot of love towards each other its a rollercoaster for sure but i did it for over 20 years and i would like to come play and relax and see more highs thenlows plz thank you hope to share some fun with you all soon to each and everyone of you have a blessed day

I am rather new to this site and to my disappointment there are few very very  few good players here. Some that I have found are using methods that clearly show they are not honest players or people with virtues that should have been taught them by a caring Father and a loving Mother. Then there are those who just harass players and for fear of repeating myself not a loving home. But I do know of many who came from poor households, volatile homes and almost no homes at all and are good people. With todays internet we do have the ability to play games with our peers only to be subjected to the ignorant and moronic. These people that disrupt our games are those that would be raping your wives and children, killing with no mercy if a holocaust occurred.

  For those of you who use means of cheating knowing that most know what you are doing are you that ignorant to continue. Apparently so why would you have the decency to stop. You have not the intelligence to have self worth. Continue as you are and some day you will look back and ponder what a loser am I. Take dignity to your grave players it might be the internet but it is your conscience.

   As for the good and honest players I solute you for being a beautiful person inside and out. If no one else is proud of you just know that one person here is and that is I.

Well I am still having fun with my stalkers. It really does impress me just how ignorant the I-diots and M-orons can be. I just such a laugh from them thinking they have done something incredibly smart like freezing up a table. Anyone can do this but only the less intelligent will go thru with it. The stupid have such fragile feelings and know not how to express themselves. You all remember how Pep362 use to harass everyone and now he actually plays games and is an excellent player. He did not realize his potential in the beginning it took time but he prevailed. I wonder if some of these vindictive players work for Games.com this might just be the reason nothing is done about them harassing players. I wonder if the FCC would like a phone call maybe it will do some good. I will see giving them a call after this post. As they say I know a guy. LMfao

Stmach

Well I have noted that Games.com has finally made a couple of changed lately. First they closed the loop hole that allows players to enter private tables. Second and this one is really needed. Just wait you are going to love this one. THEY ADDED SPELL CHECK TO AUTOMATICLY CORRECT SPELLING. Now you tell me how badly did we need that feature added. I am going to Blackcat to see what wonderful and amazing changes they have made since I was there last. Maybe they will be spanking some of these players who clone us and start groups like The Anti-Stmach Brigade. One can only dream.

@Vell662 At the very top of this page it says "PLAY NOW" Click on it and then click on single player or multiplayer. Or scroll up to "Char Rooms". Click on any room and it will take you to a room with tables.

@Buffkitty u click on the name of the player u wish to ignore...then click ignore...but sometimes u have to do it again...by clicking on their name again...and click un-ignore...then click ignore again...this happens because you or the person goes to a table or leaves lobby...so u have to do it again.

@IISDAONESPADER There is a reason that wins and losses won't work. You only get credit for the game if u are there when game starts and finishes. If u get booted u don't get the win. If u come in the middle of a game it doesn't count your win. Otherwise I agree with you.

@IggyFeelGood There are many morons on here now...just got to root out those "weeds" to find the "wheat"...it is there... :-)

@IggyFeelGood  Iggy I would suggest you ask someone to go to a private table and assist you in learning the game. You also can go to the other rooms because most of those players go there because they are as you not very good. We have many players in blackcat who think they can play spades but are too ignorant to admit they need more lessons. Blackcat table is the table for experienced players although many many don't have a clue. If you wish to stick with blackcat ask someone in the lobby to help you learn I guarantee there are enough good souls there to help. Asking is the key thing. Also you might be a better player than they suggest because it might be one of those morons or idiots we have here judging you.

@IggyFeelGood There are some really good players on here that are willing to play with someone new. I had encountered a few when I started on here last year. I didn't know one thing about playing spades, but many of them from here played with me and helped my game. Unfortunately, many of those people have moved to other sites to play spades because of the nonsense that goes on. There are a few still here, you met two of them (G and Pam)  and they are a few of the ones left. Be patient and you will find them...they are still there.

@IggyFeelGood  The ignore button is a nice feature wish more would learn to use it. If you don't respond to these horrible people they will go away. They do this to get a rise out of you if that does not work they feel defeated. Hand in there Iggy it can be fun here but the world is full of stupidity and we have a very large percentage of it here. Hope to see you at the tables.

@IISDAONESPADER I agree Spader. I found this site back in Feb 2013, by accident, and at that time it was still a "decent" site to play. I met many people on here that are the "real deal" when it comes to playing cards and are just as beautiful on the inside. There were a few "pranksters" on here too, but it was nothing too unbearable because everyone knew who they were and it wasn't done to the extent that it is now. It was not until those from other sites arrived here at games, that it was becoming a hit and miss to find a "decent person" let a lone a "decent player". All the childishness that seemed to follow caused a lot more to come creeping out of the woodwork from those "immature ones" already here. To be grown ass adults and carry on worse than children....is incomprehensible!!! You are correct in that how these people act on here is a reflection of their parents but it is also a reflection of how they view themselves.

@ed.lau Scroll back up to "CHAT ROOMS". Click on a room (ie: BAGS). There u are, in the lobby. Pick a table and sit. No permission needed.

@Shonbrown1971  You have to get one first and then you won't have to ask how to add her but maybe how to get rid of her.

@Stmach @IggyFeelGood I agree with you Stmach. Those people are the ones that have caused a lot of problems here and continue to do so with their mouths. 

Iggy, Stmach was one of them that played with me to help my game...ask and they may just help you too.
