How to play 2 player spades

In 2 player Spades, each player must first select their cards. If you want the first card, drag it to your hand. If not, discard it and keep the second card. The hand can start with any card except a spade. Spades may be played anytime after the first play. Each player, in turn, must follow suit if able; if unable to follow suit, the player may play any card. The highest spade played wins a trick containing a spade; if no spade is played, the highest card of the suit led wins the trick. The winner of each trick plays first.

How to play a Card

All playable cards are highlighted blue. Click on a playable card of your choice and drag it to the middle of the table.

Scoring

A player that makes their bid receives a score equal to 10 times the bid. Additional tricks (overtricks) are worth an extra one point each.
If a player does not make his/her bid, he/she loses 10 points for each trick that was bid.
The player who reaches the designated point total first wins the game. If both players reach the designated point total in a single hand, the player with the higher score wins.

Blind Bids

If a player is down 80 points or more to their opponent they may blind bid. Blind bids are placed before selecting the hand. Blind bids receive double points, a blind bid of 7 scores 140.

Points.
The minimum blind bid is 7 tricks.

10-for-200

If a player bids 10 tricks and makes at least 10 tricks they will receive a bonus and score 200 points rather than 100 points. A player also loses 200 points if they do not make the 10 trick bid.

Moon or Boston
