Play this popular card game with many game modes

Spades! is a popular 4 player card game where you need to make a bid based on how many tricks they will take. Spades beat any other suits and the high card wins the trick. The main objective is to make the bids without collection too many tricks. You can play the cards by tapping them or dragging them to the center.
There are several game modes and variations (Cut throat, Mirror, Whiz...), which make the app more complete and enjoyable for fans of the card game. Correct graphics and good playability; we haven't come across to the annoying apps that some users are complaining about.
Spades! was created, developers of other popular games such as Dominoes, Hearts and Bubble Popper. If you like card games and especially Spades, give it a go and try all the new features.

    Just wish you could play within ratings so you don't get stuck playing with people that don't know how to and more options on what you can say. Maybe play some of the offline games online to such as mirror and cutthroat. Very addictive.
