We present to you a new version of Spider Solitaire where all hands are matching!
2 decks of cards are used in the solitaire. 54 cards are dealt into 10 stacks (4 stacks of 6 cards each and six ones of 5 each), the remaining 50 are dealt into 5 stocks 10 cards each face down in the right lower part of the play area. In each stack all cards except the top one are closed. It is allowed to move cards from one stack to another according to the following principles:
- the top card of any stack can be moved onto an empty stack;
- the top card of a stack can be moved onto the next card higher in rank (a seven onto an eight, an eight onto a nine and so on) regardless of its suit or color;
- a stock of successive cards of the same suit can be moved as one card.
If there is a situation when you are no longer able to move cards or do not wish to do so, you should click on the stock of cards which is in the right lower corner of the screen, and a new row of cards will be dealt to you.
If the top close card of any stack is released, it is automatically opened. As soon as a stock of successively collected cards of the same suit appears, it is automatically removed into the house. It is allowed at any time when there are no empty stacks to take one of the reserved stocks of 10 cards each and distribute these cards one to each stack. The goal of the game is to collect all cards into the house.
