A good Spades partner is very hard to find. I have been playing for years and I am always amazed at the variety of styles and tactics that players use. I wish I had a good regular partner that I could play with. It makes the game much more enjoyable when you know your partner’s style and you work together as a team.
It’s a pretty cool option that you can now play Spades online, but personally I enjoy playing the old fashioned way, with real cards and real people.
