We play the classic game of Spades. Standard 10X+1 bidding , nil and 10-4-200 allowed, no sandbag penalty. See rules page on our site for complete rules used.
Our goals are to make it easy to find other classic spades players and to promote the the classic game of spades to the metroplex. We welcome all skill levels from advanced all the way to those who have never played but would like to learn.
We will usually meet at least once every 5 weeks, usually twice. I am on a 5 week on call rotations where I am on call for 2 weeks and off call for 3. We play the Friday before I go on call and the Friday after. You will see on the calendar the planned meetups for the next 3 months or so.
I will appreciate if you can donate $1 per meetup event to help cover my expenses.
About the organizer: I have been playing the classic game of Spades for over 30 years. I am familiar with most variations. I enjoy teaching/coaching new players.
Classic spades is standard bidding (10 x bid + 1 x extra tricks), nil, blind nil, 10 for 200, no sandbag penalty. There is a page on the site explaining the reasons I do not believe a sandbag penalty should be in the rules.
We also will usually have one rook deck with us for those who like to play Rook which is very similar to spades but uses a different style deck.
