History of Spades

The modern game of Spades became popular in the late 1940’s, especially on college campuses. It is assumed it descended from Whist. Spades also has a kindred spirit with Bridge, Pinochle, Euchre and other similar games featuring partnership play, bidding and a trump suit. It is determined that this game was introduced first in Cincinnati, Ohio, among the student society.
