How to Play Spider Solitaire
This classic game of Solitaire has been simplified and made easy in the game of Solitaire Spider. A solitaire game is played with a deck consisting of 52 cards. Each player is dealt two decks of cards and is given two different objective cards to play their move, that is, to build pairs by getting certain cards and following the strategy laid down by the dealer. Players will alternate turning their selected cards over. The objective of each player is to build pairs by getting specific cards. When two players have the same objective, a game will be a tie, or a deadlock, and they will stop playing.
In the solitaire game, there are basically two kinds of games that can be won: the game in which there is a deadlock, i.e., if all the cards were laid out without any moves, and the other is the one where a player has either a winning move or a losing move and still wins. In this latter case, a player must either change his or her objective card, or his or her hand, i.e., remove one card from the top of his or her deck and put in another card from the bottom. If one still wins the game, the player may either change his objective card or his hand, and the same goes for the other players. So if you have an objective card and a winning hand, then you only need to either change your objective card or your hand and that’s it. It’s that simple!
In Solitaire Spider, the usual way to play would be to build pairs by putting together pairs of same colored cards, the highest card always being the partner of the lowest card. The suits displayed on the game board are arranged in the same way as in the conventional solitaire game. You might have noticed that the usual jokers are replaced by joker suits in Spider Solitaire.
In this version of the game, the suits are arranged in pairs rather than in pairs. When playing Spider Solitaire, the two players are dealt a hand, and the cards are placed face down in front of them. A card is turned over from the top to the bottom, and then a pair of cards (the two partners) are selected from the two piles at the bottom by the action of the first player.
This means that the partners must all be jokers, and each of the partners must have at least one card of each of the two pairs of suits. The objective of the game is still the same. The two cards are placed face up on the table in front of them. To make a decision, either player can look at the selected cards and then make a selection. The selected cards are then placed in front of them, and the decision is made.
In this version of Solitaire Spider, the jokers have been transformed into the regular jokers which were used in the earlier version of the game. All the suits that were available in the earlier version of Solitaire are available in this version as well. There is a limit of fourteen that can be kept in the hand, and the partners must agree to remove that limit before the game is completed. This version of Solitaire also incorporates the standard rules of the game and it will play out the same way that it would in a traditional setting.
