|Tom Servo says "want to play a game of Spades?"|
I've taken more time to revamp the Spades bots, and those changes were deployed this morning. Both bidding, and choosing a card to play, have been substantially reworked. The bots are still far from perfect - there are some subtleties in Spades that I haven't handled, but I will eventually get to them. For now, I think that their new behavior makes them better players in general, and better partners, too.
If anyone notices specific bad habits that linger on, I'd like to hear about it. Feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just post the issue in the comments section.
