    How do you assign your trump in Spades?

    I like Joker, Joker , Ace..... But some folks play with impunity...

    Also.... Do you allow blinds and penalize for underbidding?

    How you do y'all play it?

    If I understand the question, Spades is always the trump card.
    I've never played spades using the jokers.
    To allow or not allow blinds is decided at the beginning of the game
    There is a penalty for underbidding. Bags. Bags are accumulating from underbidding.

    Maybe you misunderstood my post.....

    I already know how to play spades. There are several different ways that folks play the game. Folks ALWAYS think their way is the absolute and almighty way. I was just curious how other folks played....

    Maybe I didn't understand your question. My reply was not intended to be rude or anything negative.

    I've seen people play spades in different ways. I've never played spades where the jokers are used.

    I prefer bid whist.

    I'm with IFE; bid is much better.
