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?

    Such fun!

    I really enjoy playing with the different partners and their individual playing styles. Watch out for Betsy, she's likely to play her lowest card when you're shooting the moon!
