Spades v2.0 by Spaceways

You must have a 286 or better IBM-type computer
and a VGA card with at least 512k to play this game. You must
have all the files listed in FILES.LST. If you do not have these
things, the game will not run. If you find the game will not run,
and you already meet all these conditions, try starting it by
typing "Go2". This loads a universal VESA driver, and unloads it
when the program is finished.
We send updates as available to Genie, America Online and
Exec-PC, and zip files we have uploaded to those services will be
complete. We fervently hope that people who download our programs
will pass them along to other BBSes, and that they will pass along
the complete package, but naturally we cannot control what happens
when the programs leave our hands. If you download this game from
a local BBS and it doesn't have all its bits, please let your sysop
know, but don't bitch and moan too hard, because sysops have a rough
and thankless existence. Our complete line of games can be downloaded
from Entropy Tango BBS at 512-451-3512. (See why we know about the
life of a sysop?) After all this, if you have everything the game
needs and it still refuses to run, give our tech-line a call
between noon and 9 PM Central Current Time, at 512-451-8308.
