I'd be willing to take you up on that Smash. It's been about 6 months since I have played, but I think that Bridge is one of the most challenging games there is. It's just a shame that it's not as big as it used to be. I would play more if I knew people that actually played the game. Online is just not the same because it's a game that you really have to play with the same partner for a while to get a feel for how the other plays.It'd be cool if we could get 4.The random pop up people on Yahoo vary wildly from people bidding slams every hand arbitrarily to people telling you they play transfers and then...not..to occasioanl competent players.

Spades, Hearts, Bridge, all fun. Lots of skill in Bridge on the bidding side of it, but it takes a long time to get in sync with a new partner. I like w2, stayman, michaels, flannery, and unusual 2nt, but I betcha no two players on this site use the same conventions and play 'em exactly the same way even if they do.I love hardcore Spades (none of this blind crap or trading cards with your partner - those rules are there to give inferior players a chance to get lucky). It is the only card game I know of where you can win consistently with bad cards if you are better than your opponents.I'd love to play again if you're still looking for a partner.

You mean play to 500? You can at Pogo, but they have all sorts of screwball options. You can set up a real Spades game, but it is hard to find opponents, everyone wants to play the weird stuff. I haven't played at Yahoo in a long time, can't remember if they let you play to 500. You're right, 500 is best.

Spades is for kids, we have any experienced Uno players here? Maybe we can setup a league!

Smash and other bridge players, I would highly recommend bridgebase online for bridge. It is the biggest online bridge site, and absolutely free. Yahoo is just a joke, the level of play is beyond novice (literally the advanced players are worse than novice) and its a bunch of kiddies who leave all the time. They have some great features as well. My name on there is Jlall, send me a message if you need any help. Also might as well get a plug in...I have a new bridge blog. http://squeezingthedummy.blogspot.com :club:

I used to play Uno with my kids. It is the Devil's Game.

I've been playing spades since my childhood. I grew up playing card games with my friends and family. At the moment I am playing at VIP Spades in my free time. :10s

I love playing spades because of the rush of trumping somebody's card however it's a cutthroat game and a few friends from the past used to get overly excited in a negative way when they've realized that their partner exaggerated their ability to play spades. It's still a classic I hold dear, but I prefer not to play it that much like many other card games that have been sock drawered figuratively speaking. You really need to be on the same level as your partner or the game will not be fun.

Hi there!

Spades is a very fun trick-taking game that is similar to playing hearts if you've ever played that game. There are four players and two to a team. You either pick your partner or pull a card from the deck to determine partners.

When the dealer deals out the cards, you look at your hand and count how many spades you hold. The number of spades in your hand signifies how many tricks you can make. You and your partner combine a number of tricks you can use on the other two players. The object of the game is to make all of the tricks you predicted you would win. A spade trumps any card, but you have to have the highest card to trump a spade to another spade.

It can get pretty mean if your partner doesn't play well and exaggerated his/her skills. Try it out!
