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.

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 !!!

In Memory of Victor Fresa.............It's hard to believe it's been a year! :(......The moment that you died, my heart was torn in two ...... One side filled with heartache, the other died with you..... I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks......Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday, but missing you is heartache that never goes away.......I hold you tightly in my heart and there you will remain, until the joyous day arrives, that we will meet again......It's not the same without you Victor. We miss you. very much :(

I noticed some have stated that they are sad to see that Twitter has been removed from our Comment section. What dumb azzes are they. As for Twitter the dumbest and most ignorant post there. Example celebrities. We have enough stupidity here why add to it with twitter post. Come on people did you read the comments from twitter that were posted here. How much more stupid can a person get than those morons. Example most players here in Blackcat room. The other rooms are much worst. Why has the world and when did it happen become so ignorant. Even if you only have an IQ of 100 can't you see just how stupid you are before you show everyone. An IQ of 100 is what I believe to be the average. God only knows but I think most here in Blackcat are only pushing an 59 average if they are lucky. And common sense Does anyone here possess it at all. Hell NO! NIce Post there Pep I agree you have changed. Now that shows Intelligence. Just so you know Pep I do consider you an excellent player dam it took a long time for you to show it though. LMFAO

Mr. Stmach, I am humbled that you would mention me in your post.  If I recall, it was I that started to pick on you and be a jerk.  You gave it right back to me and had cause to do so.  I have come a long way since those days and hope you have as well.  We know there are many idiots playing spades with no class or knowledge of the game.  I have chosen to go with the flow and ignore it all.  I play to win simply because it's more fun to win than to lose.  I'm not a Saint by any means but I've learned to keep a cool head and just try to respect the folks at my table.  However, the bear will come out when necessary but never personal.  My friend Stmach I believe has grown like me.

How is everyone in the neighborhood. As for me I am great. Idiots and morons alike how the hell are you. I hope you can read this because I know you are challenged so I am trying to use very very small words. I will keep it short as I know it taxes your tiny brains to read very much. My good friend Pep362 stopped in to say high the other day. At one point I gave Pep hell but now I look back and see he is a blessing compared to most of you idiots and morons. I am so sorry for picking on you Pep you are a Saint compared to these azz wipes. Hi Ms.innocent.1 how the hell are you.

Dear games.com your place is the biggest joke on the internet, why do you allow players to be act the way they do. Just last night i had to call the police because a idiot you let play here threatened my life saying he was going to slit my throat, I have seen this go on for a year and a half, ever since your big upgrade change you made, your report button doesnt work, the tables are'nt private, you have players cloning all over the place. I have contacted the Sheriffs department and the FBI  about this situation, I do not take death threats lightly and im very disappointed in you all for allowing this for so long. Please go to games.com , then go to spades in the black cat lobby and you can see for yourself the junk. I expect answers this time and i will not stop till this site is fixed, lots of players are very sick over it, I could leave the site thats not the issue the issue is you need to fix your mistakes and do it immediately. ty hagd and ttyl

@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.

@Big Joker 4u yes i agree with you , a friend of mine was cloned  her name is LeahwuLfsgirL_3 and the clone made her name leahwulfsgirl_33, the real Leah wrote many letters to aol and games.com response was ignore, then a player by the name of Razor_Blade which i am sure was not the name probably was the clone and threatened LeahwuLfsgirL_3 so she took it upon herself to hire a lawyer and said aol and games.com better clean up this site stop the cloning  and the vulgar talk and abuse................this site needs to be the way it use to be................thank you

@Big Joker 4u Well we all know what the next step for Games.com to take and that is to totally take away chat which most other sites have done that stops threats because you all are not intelligent enough to not respond or to click ignore players. YOu insist on reponding and continuing the bull chit. It is partly your fault because you ignorance won't allow you to click ignore or simply do not respond to chat. I could say how easy that but My true thoughts is how dam stupid can you get. EXAMPLE ( BIG JOKERS 4U )

this is getting serious.This games.com should put a stop to it in particular to threats, sex talk and stop players from bidding 13 (j/k)

@Stmach @Big Joker 4u Hmmmm how interesting it was to read your post Stmach.. As YOU are one of the same ppl Big Joker posted about now aren't you. You stalked me and wouldn't leave me alone. I left every time you came to my table and you would follow me to the next table again and again. I then would make a private table and you would come to that one. I asked you to leave me alone but you wouldn't. Though you never threatened to harm me, you were still just as annoying as the ppl talking trash in the lobby. I never said a word to you to cause you to stalk me. NOT ONE WORD. You told me I HAD TO PROVE MY GAME TO YOU. Who the hell are you that I have to prove ANYTHING to? ???

So MY true thought is, you don't want Joker posting what he did because you are afraid games will take away the chat;  because you are one of the people that CLONE ppl and talk all that crap in the lobby. You are nothing but a TRUE HYPOCRITE and you thrive on acting like a fool and giving people grief when they have done nothing to you.  

Lastly, you said to Joker, " YOu insist on reponding and continuing the bull chit." Those were YOUR words and YOUR MISSPELLED words. Well tell me this, I left, I ignored you, and yet you continued now didn't you?   So, in my opinion, you are nothing but a coward that likes to bully people, especially women.

@pinny123 @Big Joker 4u  The X-rated chat is absurd and Big Joker's mouth/linguistics are horrible as well. I did witness his death threats and I support him with the awful corruption and ignoring it all with games.com. He is also correct that Games.com ignores all "Report an Issue" issues. My young neighbors always want to come over and play but I am reluctant because of the language abuse.

@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?

@ms.innocent.1 Lmao you are a trivial person who gives a chit about misspelled words you missed the point. As for joining you at a table they were public all are welcome. As for private I probably did join you but honestly I don't remember doing that. If I did and you ask me to leave I am sure I did. But I won't leave a public table. I have never harassed Joker expect in the lobby about being a blowhard. I have only sat at one table to play with him and he left when the game was over. I do speak my mind in the lobby but remember you have the choice to click IGNORE PLAYER. Again why even mention I misspelled a word. You are very trivial and you should allow me to play against you so your game will improve. But that is your choice to leave. See how that choice thing comes into play. See you at a table soon.

@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.

@Stmach @ms.innocent.1 OMG You are a LIAR...You followed me to PRIVATE tables and would NOT LEAVE and when I asked you again and again to please leave me alone even at the private tables, you would not. As far as you harassing Joker, why would you? He is a MAN.. You just like to harass women. That's what all cowardly men do. I too speak my mind and you are nothing more than a BULLY and a COWARD. 

Also, unlike you, spades is a GAME to me. I play for the enjoyment and the relaxation. I love to laugh and have fun during the game. You however, act like you are going to get a paycheck from it. Whether or not you are a better player just doesn't matter to me. You are preaching to the wrong choir. I love to win but doing so isn't going to pay my mortgage. Losing doesn't bother me one bit. As in all GAMES there is a winner and a loser. I get that concept. YOU DON'T.. Also what you don't get is, you can NEVER come to my table and play with me in the name of Stmach. You will have to use one of your many others and sneak a game with me. But hey, that goes right along with your cowardliness and bullying now doesn't it.

@ms.innocent.1 @Stmach Lmao did you not say you came here to have fun. This must be my way of having fun. Answer this I have never played with or against you under Ms.innicent name. That means you had another name and I played you then right. What was that name? You tell me this and I promise I will never bother you again. It has to be a name that I remember. Ain't this nice we two at least having a conversation.

ms.innocent.1
ms.innocent.1

@Stmach NO WE have NEVER played a game together. I never at anytime said we played a game. The FIRST time you came to my table I LEFT right away. You followed and asked why and I told you it was because I saw how you treated people here in the review and the lobby and that I didn't want anything to do with you. Again, I left my game.. you continued to follow me telling me I had to PROVE my game to you and THEN you would leave me alone. I told you I will NEVER play a game with you and I will stick to my word. 

And no it isn't nice talking to you. I don't like you OR the way you treat people you don't even know. I knew you were a shit stirrer and I tried my best to avoid you in the game. I will continue to avoid you at all cost. The ONLY reason I spoke to you here in the review is to let  everyone else that reads this, know what you are REALLY like.  To be honest, I have never one time ever said a word to Big Joker. I don't even know him but I have NEVER seen him do what you do. I usually see him laughing with the ladies and having fun in the lobby. 

His post and your response just gave me the opportunity to tell let people know you are just a desperate, pathetic, bullying, COWARD. No real MAN would act like you do. No REAL man would follow a woman around telling her what she has to do in order for him to leave her ALONE. A REAL MAN acts like a MAN at all times and NO REAL MAN would want to be around a woman that doesn't want him around her. And for those of you reading this, what does that sound like to you? Perhaps a STALKER? ? ?

I have added the words desperate & pathetic to my classification of you because only a desperate, pathetic, man would act the way you have. OR a STALKER..Which are you Stmach. If you are neither, then leave me alone as I asked long ago.


This will be my last reply to you. You are not worth the few minutes of my time that it takes me to type these words.

@ms.innocent.1 @Stmach You really make me laugh. Everyone knows me. I have been here since spades stated beta version. I will be here till the day I die. Remember what I told you about OPINIONS. As for following a woman I was following an Internet Avatar. Only you know what is on the other side and I know what or who is here. Again I do enjoy chatting with you. Maybe someday you will wake up and realize how much you have entertained me lately. I get a rise from ignorant people such as you. And believe me you are ignorant for responding the very first time.
