How To Play Spider Solitaire
Spider solitaire is a well-known solitaire game, which has gained a lot in popularity in recent years. One feature of this solitaire game is that the difficulty can be changed by using a different number of decks.
Level: Challenging/Easy (depending on how many decks are used)
Cards: Two standard 52-card decks
The game is played with two decks of playing cards. After thoroughly shuffling both decks together, 4 rows of 10 face down cards are dealt to form the tableau columns. 4 more cards are dealt face down to the 4 leftmost columns and then a face up card is dealt to the end of each column. The remaining cards are placed face down to form the stock.
All building is carried out on the tableau columns with the foundations not really participating in the game much. You may move any exposed card from the end of a tableau column to another tableau column if it creates a descending sequence (regardless of suit). e.g. 5 of hearts on 6 of diamonds or 2 of clubs on 3 of spades.
