1. xorg,

A friend and I were playing spades, and the below happened. The log pretty much speaks for itself.

It's your turn. You play a king of spades.
It's Stupid computer's turn. Stupid computer plays a 9 of clubs.
It's Friend's turn. Friend plays a 9 of spades.
It's Newby player's turn. Newby player plays a jack of hearts. [So should be out of spades at this point.]
xorg wins the trick.
It's your turn. You play an ace of diamonds.
It's Stupid computer's turn. Stupid computer plays an 8 of clubs.
It's friend's turn. friend plays a 10 of spades.
It's Newby player's turn. Newby player plays an ace of spades.
Newby player wins the trick.

Since I lead spades, the bot should have followed earlier (instead of playing the jack).

2. the-raven,

The ace of spades can be played whenever. you can save it and play it at some later point.

3. Fawaz,

As well jack of trump in Jass/Apples.

4. Nikola,

Wait really? Is that mentioned in the rules somewhere or did I just miss that?

5. Fawaz,

Not sure if mentioned in the rules, but its like that anyway :) only in these 3 games jass/apples/spades.

6. Nikola,

Yep tested it and it really is so. From my quick glance at the rules, doesn't seem to be there. Thanks for the info

7. BigGun,

owe my god, I also didn't know that. thanks for the info.
