This is a very good Spades game, but if you are a very good player some playability issues surface:
* The play algorithm has players play a card that would be a winner if held for a subsequent trick. Specifically, it has the player play a King when the Ace is still unplayed. You can steal tricks (by leading a Jack for example) that a real player would not lose.
* Your computer partner does not protect Nil bids well. It is frustrating when it unnecessarily leads a low card and sinks your bid.
* The computer resorts to suicide Blind Nil bids far too often. Many games are won because the opposing team hits -200; this gets very tiresome.

Otherwise, this is a well-done game and I suspect that less expert players wouldn't be as affected by the above problems as I. A few algorithm tweaks would improve play. The worst problem is the first I mention above, but that should be easily correctable. Maybe Blind Nil play could be configurable?

    Computer cheats

    I have noticed that the computer will cheat I'll play an Ace of Hearts down for the first round and one of the "computer players from the other team" will lay down a spade and than that same player will play a heart for the next round.

    Hearts closes unexpectedly in Nook; now chronic. After investing in the game for months, this disappoints!

    See headline: hearts will not open and forces a force close. Several times a hard reset was needed. Disappointing afterhours of addictive activity. Forces a repurchase?

    I love the challenge of this game. Its fun:). However it dosent give you the option of choosing your partners:(. It also dosent give you the option to play online against real partners;). Overall it gives me something to do on my nook.

    Too many glitches!

    Too many glitches! 1) the game freezes up 2) your partner sucks 3) tricks are given to the wrong player often( the winning card doesn't get the trick). Fix the problems and this would be an awesome game
