"you know anybody under 35 that play bid whist? "


          

me either.

my ladys people take spades pretty serious but that was for the kids table in my fam. seeing them play i realized my familys games were a lot less contentious ha. we still talk shit but liquor generally wasnt a component so that prolly played a part.

some of it may be regional, but theres also diff rules depending on the coast so it cant just be that, e.g., west coast dont sport the kitty on a "no" (btw whist got spades beat in the lingo/slang department. "sport the kitty?" nigga. plus yelling BOSTON! in a whist game hit a lil different.) also thought it was bid "wiz" for the better part of 25 years, south-mouth ass fam ha.

my folks said they used to play in undergrad (at a pwi), i doubt they playing it in college today (hbcu or otherwise).

we really losin recipes smh.

Spades is I declare war once you learn whist and pinochle.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

..I laugh when people brag spades.

Learned the game watching my mother & her sister run Bostons on unsuspecting victims.

I still play online when the mood strikes, but finding a suitable partner is a challenge. Will settle for 3/5/9 in a pinch, but there's nothing like an even pair.

17. "Bridge "
In response to Reply # 0


          

We graduated from spades to Contract Bridge back in the early 90s.

But a lot of folks prefer non-bid games - Booray was preferred in my southern home town.

Also; People get real good at cheating at Bridge real quick.
