Turn your Android into an INTERACTIVE SCOREKEEPER for the game of Spades. Grab a deck of cards and invite your friends over for a real game of Spades and let Spades Lackey keep you focused on the game, freeing yourself from scoring concerns when manually scoring Spades with pencil and paper. And as a bonus, it's interactive interface adds a bit of enjoyment to an already great game!
Spades Lackey has a unique screen. It is designed to be set on the card table with the bottom edge of the phone pointing to the player sitting in the "South" position. You’ll notice that the four triangles correspond to each player. When bidding, Lackey is intended to be “slid” to the bidder who inputs their own bid. When a trick is taken, the player triangle is tapped. When all tricks have been taken, Lackey automatically scores the hand and shows a summary.
Lackey takes care of the details and lets you keep your focus on the game and your friends. Lackey keeps track of whose turn it is to deal and bid, and always displays scores, bids, and tricks taken for all to see!
Note that Spades Lackey is NOT an actual game of Spades, it is a graphical score keeping assistant and game log!
