“Me and my family are avid Spades players,” says Burruss. “So when the opportunity to create Kandi Koated Spades presented itself, I jumped at the chance to share this unique app with my fans.

Just in time for the holidays, music and TV celebrity Kandi Burruss is bringing a new twist to a classic card game. Introducing Kandi Koated Spades, the first “urban” Spades app for iPhone/iPad users – now available in the iTunes App Store.

Developed by urban video gaming company Konsole Kingz, Kandi Koated Spades allows multiple players to play online while using features such as “Reneg,” “Deuces Wild,” and “Jokers.” The app is designed to reflect the fast-paced, “trash-talking” style of Spades that’s most popular in the African-American community.

“Me and my family are avid Spades players,” says Burruss. “So when the opportunity to create Kandi Koated Spades presented itself, I jumped at the chance to share this unique app with my fans. I’m a Spades pro and I can promise you that this is the best Spades game on the market!”

Kandi will celebrate the launch of the Spades app at a private game party in Atlanta next week.

"The iPhone has over 500,000 apps. We noticed no one was creating high-quality games for African-Americans,” says Marcus Matthews, producer of the game. “Like Spike Lee and Tyler Perry did for film, we created something our community could enjoy.”

“Spades is the one game that almost every African-American has played or witnessed,” adds Cj Peters, CEO of Konsole Kingz. “So it certainly made sense to develop Kandi Koated Spades and bring it to the iPhone and iPad.”

Kandi Koated Spades Key Features:

  • Online Multiplayer (play against 3 real people)
  • Custom avatars (use the camera to put yourself in the game)
  • In-game profiles (let everyone know where you're from, post your Twitter, and earn awards (crowns) for playing)
  • Chat (chat from the main menu and during the game)
