Spades and Game rules
There are four players and two teams in a game. And you team up with the player in front of you.
Deal and turn are done in a clockwise direction.
Before starting a round, each player will need to bid the number of tricks they will take. It can be from 0 to 13. And your bid and your partner’s bid are added together. Each team will need to take that number of tricks to get more points and win.
Unlike other bidding games, Spades’ game doesn’t require the player to bid higher than the number of bids that the last player has taken. Be smart as you bid.
The game uses the standard 52 card pack. After bidding, the cards will be shuffled and dealt. Each player will start with 13 cards from this pack.
The card rank in each suit is: A (highest), K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
Each player hands out a card on a table. The card needs to have the same suit as the person who started. If you don’t have any cards of the same suit yet, you can play any card. The special thing about this game is that if you play a spade card and there are no higher spade cards than yours in the trick, you will win that trick. Otherwise, you will lose that trick if you don’t have any cards that match the first card. Besides, if there are no cards that have the same suit as the first card, the first person will win that trick . The winner of that trick will be the first to play in the next round.
The score of each trick will depend on the total bets of you and your partner. For example, if you bet 4, your partner bids 4 and both of you win 4 tricks, you and your partner will gain 80 points (8*10). You can also bet nill, which is a very special case of the games. If you win zero tricks, you will gain a staggering amount of 100 points. However, if you are unable to fulfill your bid, your partner can do so for you (you can win three tricks and your partner can win five, for a total of eight tricks).But if both of you cannot get to the total number of bids, your team will lose 10 points for each bid. So if both of you bid 5, and get 4 tricks, your team lose 50 points. For each trick that wins more than total bids, you’ll also gain an additional 1 point. But beware the fact that you will gain the same number of bags equal to the points. And if the total number of bags equals 10, you and your partner will lose 100 points each, and the bag will be reset to zero. Both under-trick and over-trick will make you pay. So think twice before you announce your bet.
The winner will be decided if a team has more than 500 points. If both of the two teams have more than 500 points at the end of a trick, the team with more points will win the game.
