Cards passed around (6)


I believe the answer is:


'cards' is the definition.
(spade is a kind of card)

'passed around' is the wordplay.
'around' indicates an anagram.
'passed' is an anagram of 'SPADES'.

(Other definitions for spades that I've seen before include "Black suit" , "One of two black suits" , "those getting soiled?" , "Shovels or playing cards" , "Digging implements" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
