Simple Simon solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Signora | Simplicity >>
Goal: Build complete same-suit sequences in the layout from king to ace, moving out each when you can.
Build the 10 piles of the layout down in any suit. You can move a group of cards that are in sequence, and all the same suit. Empty piles can be filled with anything.
Like Spiderette, this is like a 1-deck variation of Spider. David Parlett suggests it could be called 'Little Miss Muffet' to keep the title in line with other members of the Spider family.
There are 10 piles like in Spider, each with a varying number of cards like in Spiderette. Unlike either however, there are no remaining cards in the deck after the deal.
Some descriptions leave the final sequences in the layout rather than moving them out, in the same manner as Scorpion.
