Multiplayer Tiki Spades - I grew up learning to play every card game imaginable and even though I’m more of a card guppy than a card shark, I enjoy card games immensely. It’s not always easy to find other people to join in, so I really appreciate a good video card game. Multiplayer Tiki Spades is video spades you can play anywhere with the added bonus of being able to play online with others.
Multiplayer Tiki Spades by Amplified Games, Inc., who also brought us Chili Pepper Black Jack, Fat Free Poker, and Cookie Solitaire, lets you play spades on your iPhone both offline against computer players and online with others.
Utilizing the social interface of JuJu Play, users can join in with other players for a Normal, Fast, or Faster game of spades. Simply register your email and create a password at JuJu Play and sign in to locate players. Choose three different games — normal, fast, or faster — based on a set score or time limit. You can also chat with other players in your room, view leader boards and track high scores and game stats.
As far as I can tell, Multiplayer Tiki Spades is the real deal. I’m no Hoyle, but you can bid blind Nil for extra points and the game keeps track of underbids as bags, which is how I’ve always played. The tapping interface is smooth and accurate when choosing and playing cards.
The ability to play by yourself or online with others is a feature I wish more apps had. In my experience it seems a fairly stable process, though from time to time, don’t be surprised if you or someone in your game loses network connection. Yet in most cases, the connection can be successfully reestablished. I played several games online and only came across one instance where the game glitched out.
If you enjoy the game of spades, definitely check out Multiplayer Tiki Spades. The free version of Multiplayer Tiki Spades contains the same features as the paid version, but the paid version eliminates all ads.
