The Basics

Spades is a simplified version of Bridge and a bit similar to the game Hearts. You play it with 4 players (in this game 3 of those are played by the computer). It is played with one deck of cards dealt out between the players, each receiving 13 cards. After looking at your cards you should estimate how many tricks you will make with your cards. After this is done one player stats by playing a card and all players should follow suit. The highest card wins the trick. Spades is the trump color, which means a spades card is always higher than a card of one of the other three suits. If you cannot follow suits you can play a spades card (not obligated). No one can start a trick with spades until spades has been broken (meaning until someone has played a spades card when not being able to follow suit). You play the game together with the player sitting opposite of you, the goal is to together reach your combined goal, and ideally prevent the opposing team from reaching their goal.

Spades Card Game - Tutorial and Review

Tutorial and Review of the puzzle game Spades Card Game from MobilityWare.


The computer opposition is not not terrible, but also not particularly good at the game. There is a hard mode that supposedly gives better opposition, I haven't tried it yet. With card games there is always a luck factor and it would be nice if there would be some point system more like bridge, where points are assigned based on how you play with a certain hand of cards compared to how others have done with it.


With 52 cards randomnly divided between 4 players every game is different.


Mobilityware has various card games and they all look similar: not fancy, functional.

Free vs Paid

Feature complete with some ads that are not too obtrusive.

Is It Any Good?

I give Spades Card Game 7 out of 10 stars. Nice card game, well done.
