Spider Solitaire is a card game in which the goal is to remove all of the cards from the table by arranging them in the tableau before removing them.
The goal of the game:
When it comes to Spider Solitaire, there are a variety of options to choose from. Depending on the type, these will increase and decrease in difficulty (1 Suit, 2 Suit, and 4 Suit). We'll start with the basic beginner version of one suit for clarity's sake.
The game is played with two decks of cards with no jokers, or 104 cards, shuffled before each game in all versions of the game (1 Suit, 2 Suit, and 4 Suit). The cards are then arranged in ten piles or columns along a horizontal line, with six cards in each of the first four piles and five cards in each of the last six piles. Each pile is dealt one card at a time, with the first card going to the first pile, the second to the second, and so on. The 11th card would be dealt with the first pile, and so on until all 54 cards have been dealt.
Following the drawing of the face-up cards, the remaining cards are placed in the Stockpile and will be used to draw cards into the game. The Tableau refers to a line of ten piles. Allow enough space above or below the Tableau for eight more piles, which will serve as the "Foundation," where you will move your card piles after completing the King through Ace descension.
