What is Spider ▻ Solitaire

Spider Solitaire is a card game that uses two decks of cards. The goal is to arrange the cards in descending order from King to Ace by suit on the tableau columns.

When a complete sequence of cards is formed, it is moved to a foundation pile. The game is won when all cards are moved to the foundations.

Spider ▻ Solitaire Gameplay

You start with 10 tableau columns of cards, with the top card of each column face up and the rest face down. The first four columns have six cards each and the last six columns have five cards each.

You can move any exposed card from one column to another if it is one rank lower and of the same suit as the card it is placed on. For example, you can move a 9 of hearts onto a 10 of hearts.

You can also move a group of cards in sequence and of the same suit from one column to another. For example, you can move a 7-6-5 of spades as a unit onto an 8 of spades.

When a column is empty, you can fill it with any card or group of cards.

When you have a complete run of cards from king to ace of the same suit on a column, it is automatically moved to one of the eight foundation piles at the top.

You can deal a new row of cards from the stock pile to the tableau columns by clicking on the stock pile. You can only do this when all columns have at least one card.

The game is won when all cards are moved to the foundations.

Spider ▻ Solitaire Tips & Tricks

Know the game’s rules by heart. You should be familiar with the basic moves and objectives of the game before you start playing.

Turn all the pieces picture-side-up. This will help you see the colors and shapes of the pieces better.

Sort pieces into groups. You can sort them by color, shape, pattern, or any other criteria that makes sense to you. You can also separate the edge pieces from the rest, as they are easier to identify and put together.

Start with the edges. A popular strategy is to assemble the border of the puzzle first, as it gives you a clear frame to work with.

Work on one section at a time. You can focus on a specific area of the puzzle, such as a dominant color, an object, or a character. You can use the box image as a guide, or try to find pieces that match the ones you already have.

Use a large, flat surface. You need enough space to spread out the pieces and move them around. You can also use a puzzle mat, board, or tray to store and transport your puzzle without breaking it.
