We are one of the premier groups in the state of Texas for those who enjoy playing spades.  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 complete beginner to advanced.   

We usually meet at least once every 5 weeks, usually twice.  Our preferred place to play is IHOP because they are open 24 hours and as long as tables are not needed they let us stay late.  Other locations will also be used.

I do not charge membership fees but appreciate donations toward meetup fees and other expenses. 

When joining I do ask your primary profile pic for the group be you so we can recognize you when you come to meetups.  You can have additional pics of pets, kids, grandkids, whomever or whatever as long as your default pic is a recent pic of you.  By recent at least this century.  LOL

Standard 10X+1 bidding , nil and 10-4-200 allowed, no sandbag penalty.  For our complete rules see Spades Rules on our DFWspades website.  Please read this page before joining.  Everyone joining the group agrees to honor these rules.  You may ask players at any table to play by any variations from these rules but agreement must be unanimous.  If even one player says no to the variation then the rules set forth in the rules pages of this site must be honored.   

If you want to understand why our rules do not include sandbag penalties see this Sandbag rules discussion.

About the organizer: I have been playing the Spades for decades and have read just about every book on spades ever published.  I am familiar with most variations including 5,6, and 7 player partnership versions.  We can almost guarantee you everyone will have a partner if you are just a little flexible. 

I enjoy teaching/coaching new players.  You can always ask me a question at any time and I offer periodic beginner spades classes.

We're 368 Spaders
