Spades the classic trick-taking card game played by two partnerships. Bidding: Each player bids the number of tricks he expects to take. Players play in Partnership: the bids by each member of the partnership are added together. Game play: Spades are the trump card in this game. A trick is won by the player who played the highest value Card. If one or more trumps were played the highest trump card wins, otherwise the highest card of the suit led wins. You must follow suit if you can, otherwise any card can be played. A player may not lead Spades until a Spade has been played to trump another trick.
