Spades is a trick-taking card game somewhat akin to Hearts but more closely related to Bridge.

The game is played by hands. Each hand consists of a number of tricks. The player on the dealer's left makes the opening lead, and players must follow suit, if possible. A common house rule is that the player with the two of clubs must make the opening lead, which is traditional in Hearts. If a player cannot follow suit, he may play any card, including a trump card. The trick is won by the player who plays the highest trump, or, if no trump was played, by the player who played the highest card in the suit led. The player who wins the trick gathers the cards up into an easily identifiable pile. The number of tricks a player has won cannot be disguised, if asked each player must count out their tricks until everyone has agreed on their "trick count." The player who wins the trick leads next. Play continues until none of the players have any cards left. [Wikipedia]
