Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

SouthernTouch Spades for the NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet is a fun and convenient take on the familiar card game. SouthernTouch Spades provides impressive artificial intelligence (AI) for an entertaining challenge without any of the delays associated with multi-player interactions.

Our AI understands the concept of teamwork, and your digital partner will play cooperatively. The latest update implements a more sophisticated algorithm for advanced gameplay. Available options include single-click or two-click playing mode, variable speed of play, and a winning score between 250 and 1000 points. We have 4 different backgrounds and 2 card faces to choose. We feature an optional "Bid Confidence" meter, where your computer partner displays a graphic that indicates how strong they believe their bid is. And now, thanks to requests from our users, we offer the ability to call a "misdeal" on eligible hands (0 - 1 spades, no 10 or face cards, or 7 or more of one suit).

    Great Spades game

    I've been looking for a good spades game on any mobile platform, and this one seems to fit the bill. The computer players, both your opponents and your teammate, do a good job bidding and playing their hands. Your partner will try to cover you if you bid nill, and he also does a good job letting you win hands instead of stealing them from you.

    The graphics are clear and the animations smooth. There are options to play from 250 points up to 1000. My son is learning how to play spades, and he appreciates the option to slow down the rate of play so he can better understand what is going on.

    All things considered, this is a fun game and well worth a dollar.

    Recommended - Fun Spades Game

    It's a good time-waster. I was impressed with the art as well as the general presentation of the game. The attention to detail, snappy gameplay, and depth of the graphics all contributed to a cohesive app. Having played Spades (the card version) before, the game was easy to pick up and play. The default "double click to play" threw me. It was easy enough to change, but I'd rather the initial default be "single click to play". The AI is smart and actually provides a challenge. Somehow, it still feels a lot like "chance" with the hands you're dealt. The game doesn't feel rigged for either the player or the computer AI. I only noticed a single visual error with text wrapping in the "Setup" menu, and it didn't detract from gameplay whatsoever. I'm rating this the best possible because it is a really fun game, but I'd love to see a "continue game?" option on restart. Currently, if you power down your nook, you lose your progress. (Fortunately, I've powered down only a dozen times or so since I've had my nookColor from launch, so this won't be a problem, but still...) Side Note: That other "0-star" review shilling for a competing product is classless. I bet that donkey didn't even buy this game.

    Excellent Spades Game

    I really enjoy playing this spades game. The computer is a good challenge and your teammate actually helps you win. The graphics are very pleasing and really look sharp on my new Nook Color.

    So-so.

    I really liked the original Aces Spades for Nook but it will not play on my new Tablet. I tried this but it's a poor substitute.

    Fun but doesn't score correctly

    This is a fun game and it's nice to finally have a partner that helps you win. But there have been several times that the scoring is wrong. I'm usually just playing to kill time so it's not a huge deal, but if I'm gonna take a chance on a blind nil bid, I want my stinking points for it. Please fix asap.

    Fun and dumb

    If my real partner bid this poorly I would be doing life without parole. Still fun though.

    Just had an update on this game two days ago and it STILL doesn't keep score correctly when there are nil bids. Shorts you on the 100 points. Had hoped the update would take care of the problem but it deginitely did not.i'm done with this game.

    Great Spades game

    I've really enjoyd this game. The computer players are definitely a step up from the other card games out there. I haven't experienced any of the scoring problems mentioned by another reviewer. If you like spades, hearts, or bridge, I recommend this game.

    I did love this spades app but after the last update the AI is T

    I did love this spades app but after the last update the AI is TERRIBLE!  It won't try to set the other team, leads to the other team, won't try to cover a nil and basically plays for the other team.  To bad, it was the best spades app out there.

    Excellent

    Excellent version of spades the only flaw i found ,is that the developers left out a misdeal option. so i'm often stuck with really crummy 8 of 1 suit etc hands . the ai skill level is fairly good and i've encountered no glitches so far .really enjoy this app overall i recommend it

    Love It

    I bought this game a few months back and feel they did a good job with everything. I think it's even improved my real game, because I bid better. I love it. Keep the solid games and nice graphics coming.
