what did you learn from Spades game?
Spades is a trick-taking card game devised in the United States in the 1930s. It can be played as either a partnership or solo/”cutthroat” game. You have to trust your partner. The idea of going into the game as an individual will not work if you want to win. Before each round in Spades, you can look at the hand you were dealt with and estimate how many “books” (number of tricks) you can make. Card games generally aren’t rocket science, but for many families, the ease and fun are half the point. Card games can teach math and memory skills, as well as strategic thinking. Also, the conversation and friendly rivalry that come up with sitting down to play can strengthen family ties. Family games also can build children`s confidence: the rules are the same for everyone, and it is fun to play a game in which anyone can win.
