Spider solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Spanish Patience (Alternate) | Spider (One Suit) >>
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.
Each time you are done making moves, deal one new card to the top of each pile. There must not be any empty piles before doing so.
Variations: Black Widow, Microbe, Spider (One Suit), Spider (Two Suits)
This is one of the most popular 2-deck solitaire games. It's a challenging game to win. The easier variations using only 1 or 2 suits make more maneuvering possible.
