Spades is a very popular trick-taking game played by four partnerships.
4 players in two partnerships.
Partners sit across the table from each other. Choose a dealer. Shuffle the deck and deal each player 13 cards.
The player to the dealer's left bids first. Each player looks at his cards and bids, indicating a number of tricks.
Partners' bids are added; the sum is the number of tricks that partnership must win to score points.

Any number from 0 ("Nil") to 13 is a legal bid for each player. Players may not to pass.
Bids do not have to increase with each player. There's only one round of bidding.

Bidding Nil
A player who bids Nil (zero) is claiming that he won't win any tricks during the hand.
If he's successful, his partnership earns a 100-point bonus. However, if he wins one or more tricks,
his partnership receives a 100-point penalty based on the setting.

If a player bids Nil and his partner bids a number, then his partner must still try to win that number of tricks.
Gameplay
The player to the dealer's left plays first ("leads"). He may not lead with a spade unless his hand only includes spades.
In fact, unless a player has no option, spades may never be led until the suit is "broken" (see below).

Play continues clockwise. Each player must follow suit (i.e. play the same suit that was led) if possible.
Generally, each trick is won by the player who played the highest rank of the suit led. However,
if one or more players played spades, the trick is won by the player who played the highest rank of spades.

When a trick is won, the winning player sets the trick in front of himself so that it's easy to tell how many tricks each player has won.
Scoring
Each trick in a bid counts for 10 points if a partnership meets its bid.
Tricks won above the bid are worth 1 point each.
If a partnership does not meet its bid, it scores 10 negative points for each trick it bid.

A partnership should avoid winning too many tricks above its bid.
Each time a partnership wins 10 bags (cumulative through a game), that partnership receives a 100-point penalty.

Continuing Play
After scoring a hand, if neither partnership has reached 500 points, the player to the dealer's left becomes the new dealer.

Winning
The first partnership to reach 500 points is the winner. If both partnerships reach 500 in the same hand,
the partnership with the highest score is the winner. If there's a tie, play another hand.
