Blindfold Spades

Category: 

Description of App: 

Blindfold Spades is a fully accessible Spades card game for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play.

Blindfold Spades is a trick taking game where the spade suit is always trump. First you decide how many tricks you will be able to take, and you bid that amount. You play against 2 computer players who also bid how many tricks they think they can take.

You score highest if you make exactly the number of tricks that you bid, and you lose the most if you don't make at least the number of tricks that you bid. A help on how to play Spades is included with the app.

You can customize the game to your liking: how much extra information is spoken and how quickly it is spoken, how many sound effects are used amongst other things.

Blindfold Spades was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Wildcard and Blindfold Solitaire.

There is a STARTER PACK in-app upgrade that unlocks all advanced features. We'll be adding more Spade game variants as in-app upgrades.
