    Good, but has play problems

    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?

    Fun game

    This game was fun while I was able to play it. Within a 4 hour time period the game shut down and I am unable to play it any longer. I am glad it wasn't expensive because it is a waste of money when you purchase something and it will not work

    Best Spades game available HOWEVER... on the Nook TABLET.... min

    Best Spades game available HOWEVER... on the Nook TABLET.... mine decided to go on strike for no apparent reason. The problem is solvable but online chat support didn't disclose this. The genius propeller-head at the store clued me in.

    The only way to get it back was to do a hard factory reset, which sadly resets your entire nook to factory out-of-the-box settings. You lose all your progress in ALL of your games/apps and have to start your entire Nook life over. It doesn't cost anything becasue all your apps are archived in your online account... but it's very frustrating. Nook support tried to help (and were very nice about it) but in the end they blamed the developer saying the app is advertised to support the Nook Color, not the Nook Tablet. /rolls eyes

    I had the same problem occur on the Hearts game from the same developer. I don't know if it's the Nook or the software... or me. Whatever the case, this particular developer makes the best games for this product so I hope between the two parties a resolution is found.

    I think it's a fantastic app so I did the hard reset. I hope it doesn't have to be done again though.

    Would not recommend this app

    This game Cheats, The game is very frustrating. For example, You can be playing and the person to your left opens with the king of spades which is trump, the next player throws a ten, the next player a jack, then when it's your turn you throw an ace of spades thinking you would take the trick, well guess what ? the player that threw down the king of spades beats your ace and takes the trick, what's up with that last I knew an ace of spades is top trump and takes all. Also I was playing partners last night and my partner bid 4 tricks and I also bid 4 tricks. we both covered and each got our 4 tricks and no more. Well guess what happened this time. The darn dog barked and we lost 100 points, we did not sand bag so why did we lose 100 points ? if someone could explain this I would appreciate it. Thank You
