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.

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

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.

Idiots and Morons this site has plenty! Do any of you fools read what you post? Take this simple test. Go look in the mirror and what do you see? You see one of these Idiots or Morons I just told you about. Now I do believe most idiots and morons can find a place here to play. Bags room is the hip hop place to be. They thrive on people like Y'all. Go there have fun tell them Stmach sent you. We all know that birds of a feather stick together so I know in my big heart you all will be happier there together. Go have fun and bless you all.

Aww I got another new fan. I love you all the same. Opinions are like your round brown spot we all have at least one and they all stink! I have to say that when Stmach is right you can take that to the bank buddy. You hang in there Blackcatspades1 don't let people like Bluecollarman get to you. I will have to join you sometime when I see you and play a round or two you sound like my kind of person. Bluecollar I have not a clue who you are so supply me with a name I know that I have played against and I know I didn't partner with someone as ignorant as you.

Read the post and see how many don't have the intelligence to even start a game. No wonder we have all these ignorant players here. We all know what site they are coming from. Can you not just imagine their parents. I am constantly checking out players and they are all just alike idiots and morons. Players this is a game of skills and memory. Gambling does not appy that is why they put the BLIND NILS HERE for the gamblers. They know you are losers from the beginning so they entice you to play with it. This gives you a chance to win and that is what gambling is all about. A game such as spades played correctly requires a Beautiful mind that can remember only 52 cards and make a reasonable assumption what cards are held by other players by what has been played what you have in your hand and what the other bid. Not hard to do with a Beautiful mind. You also have to work with a partner who knows how you think and control the game to go in your favor. So in a nut shell it takes two beautiful minds working as one. So for all you nuts trying to break out just stay in that shell where you are safe. I hear Bags room is looking for a few players. Trumps is too! The practice room is Good Luck so good luck practicing there.

For years I have wondered why AOL allows the main account holder to have up to 7 screen names.  Folks hate being cloned and that is why it happens.  Very simple to fix.  One account, one screen name.  You have one or more people in your household, simple.  Separate accounts for each with one screen name.   Another thing they can do is only allow lower case letters with no spaces or numbers, only letters.  The biggest change I'd like to see is stopping folks from posting pics other than the avatar that aol provides.  I'll tell you why !!  Nothing bothers me more when I have to sit across an ugly person who also can't play sades.  First thing I do is hide the face then decide how long I will stay because they can't play.  Then there are those folks that post pics that who knows where they got them but it's not who they are.  This is more common with women than men.  They post glamorous pics and sometimes slutty pics to attract men because that's why they are here playing spades anyway.  In closing, I really don't care what anybody thinks of my views and opinions.  I play because I enjoy the game.  All the other nonsense is childish and foolish.  Time to wake up AOL !!!

@BlueCoIlarMan Hey Bluecollarman, hmmmm maybe he has multiple personalities...Either way, no one should ever pick on the mentally handicapped. And it is quite obvious he definitely has mental issues. UNLESS, he is just a BAITER  ...Which I am more inclined to think that is all he is.. A simple minded, pathetic, BAITER ...Also, if I recall correctly, it was BAGS  that he was stalking me in as that is where I play with kind people UNLIKE him.

@pep362 Quit whining about AOL, screen names, multiple accounts, clones and assorted dysfunctional chat idiots.  AOL DOES NOT CARE about these trivial issues.  All they care about is whether the traffic on their game site is sufficient to generate advertising revenue.  It is clear that no matter how contrived the games are, nor how rude and hostile many of the players are, that people will continue to be drawn to this site like lemmings to the sea.  As long as this is the case don't expect any changes.

@pep362 The answer to our problem is for Games.com to require you register your name and a valid confirmed phone number with adress that way they can remove a guilty party from playing. Very simple is it not. Before you can play games.com could call the number and confirm you are the person creating the user name. If you wanted to duplicate at some point you run out of numbers to confirm user name and in the process they remove the one causing problems.

@ed.lau Or u can scroll up to where it says "Play Now" and click on either "Single Player" or "Multiplayer".

@wishfulthinker9a @pep362 Wishful everyone knows you are our local IDIOT. Go back to your dark corner and remain silent. Please. You take up less space that way.

@Stmach you want to give your phone number to the world? Stupid idea. I sure as hell don't. They could make it so people can't put any pic but the ones AOL supplies and stop chat so the unhappy sorry azz'z can't voice their ass-n- 9  opinions all over game site.

@Stmach @wishfulthinker9a @pep362  Rather than call me names why not explain where I am wrong in what I said?  What evidence is there that AOL cares about the issues you and pep have detailed?  Likewise, what evidence is there that AOL has done anything to improve the gaming environment?  The graphic bells and whistles have gotten better and the advertising displays have gotten slicker in the years I have been playing here but the contrived games are still the same and the people are acting worse.  Even though you think I am an idiot, we actually agree about the dysfunctional players who disrupt games, cheat, and otherwise act like asses.  But what evidence is there that AOL cares about these issues?  AOL will only do something to change the gaming environment when people stop playing.  If you don't agree with me you can say so in a respectful manner.  Why the name calling?

@wishfulthinker9a @Stmach @pep362 Never Said You Were Not Correct Wishful. Just trying to get a rise out of you and you handled it well. Wishful you are finallly growing up. YOu earned some respect there.
