Description

Spider Solitaire (see Figure 4-85) is a simple card game, similar to Solitaire, which was discussed earlier this chapter. The object is to arrange the cards sequentially and by suit. Cards are moved by placing them on the eight piles in descending order, following suit. For example, place the Jack of Spades on the Queen of Spades, or the Two of Hearts on the Three of Hearts. When you complete an entire suit, King to Ace, it is removed from the board. The game ends when all cards have been removed.

Figure 4-85. Spider Solitaire isn't nearly as addictive as Klondike or FreeCell, but if you like arachnids...


The game is always played with 52 cards, but easier skill levels (chosen at the beginning of the game) reduce the number of suits; for example, the easiest skill level uses all Spades. Go to Game Options to choose your preferences, such as whether or not your game is saved when you exit.

The cards in Spider Solitaire will overlap unless you're using a screen resolution of at least 800 x 600 and the window is maximized.
