HOW TO PLAY. This game follows standard Spider Solitaire rules. The object of Spider Solitaire is to re-arrange the cards into numerically ordered groups.
The high card is the King, and the low card is the Ace.
When you begin, the cards are dealt into 10 piles (also called tableaus). The first four piles have six cards, while the remaining piles have five cards.
The cards are dealt face down, except the last card of each tableau which is face up.
Using the mouse, drag face up cards from one tableau to another. For example, if there is a 9 card in one tableau and an 8 card in another, drag the 8 card underneath the nine card. The face down card below the 8 card then becomes a new up card.
Sequential cards can be moved as a group. However, a sequence that is covered by a non-sequential card cannot be moved.
When you get a full sequence of cards from King to Ace, the sequence disappears automatically from the board.
When you reach the point where no more up cards can be played, click the top card in the Stock pile in the upper left corner of the board. This deals a new up card to each tableau pile.
A good strategy is to try and clear out the lowest pile. That way, when a space opens up you can move one of your King sequences to that space.
