Spider solitaire ( solitaire or patience ) is a well-known solitaire game, which has gained a lot in popularity since Microsoft have started shipping it free with windows.
Spider solitaire uses two decks (104 cards). You have 10 tableau piles. 54 cards are dealt to these piles (6 cards are dealt to first four piles and 5 cards to the remaining ones). Top card of each pile is face up.
The object of the game is to build 8 sequences down in suit within the tableau (each running from King to Ace) and then move them to 8 foundations.
Top cards of tableau piles are available to play. You can build tableau piles down regardless of suit, ending at Ace.You can not build a King on an Ace. One card at a time can be moved from pile to pile. Groups of cards in sequence down by following suit may be moved as a unit.
When any of tableaus are empty you can fill space with any card or group of cards.
When you have made all the available plays on the board, click on the stock pile to deal one card on each tableau pile. All gaps (empty spaces) in the tableau have to be filled before the deal.
