What we're about

Welcome to the Philly Spades Players. My name is Earl Davis and I am the organizer of this group. We welcome folks who are beginners looking to learn how to play, to recreational players who doesn't take the game seriously and have fun, to the cut throats who love to trash talk and have a good time. We are open to players in the Delaware Valley (Philadelphia, South Jersey, and Delaware). There aren't too many rules that I have, but being respectful is at the top of the list. We are here to have fun and enjoy each other's company. There are lot of different rules that folks play. So here is my main house rule: ALL GAMES GO TO 350 POINTS or TWO SETS!!!!!!!! THE TABLE RULES WILL BE SET BY THE PLAYERS AND WHOMEVER WINS THE GAME RUNS THE TABLE....SO THEY MAKE THE SECONDARY RULES!!!!! We will always have TWO DECKS OF CARDS to a table to allow games to move quickly, especially when there are folks who are waiting to play. My plan is to have a meetup on the Philly side and one on the South Jersey side. There will be a cover charge when we serve food. That will be $20. If we do not serve food and do snacks instead, it will be $10 unless otherwise specified by me. While spades is the foundation of this meetup, I do plan on opening up the meetup to Pinochle and Bid Whist players as well. So if there are folks who play these games, invite them out as well...….the more the merrier. If you have questions, issues, or concerns, please let me know and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Also, if you have any suggestions to help make the group better, by all means, I'm all ears. As we build up these meetups, I will be looking for co-organizers to join me so that even when I am unable to plan a meetup or attend, the event(s) will go off without a hitch. With all that being said, I am constantly thinking of ways to improve this group. I have somethings in mind but the most important is to bring in card players in the area for food, laughs, trash talk, and cards......and I look forward to sharing good times with you all. Until then, Peace and Blessings...…
