The description of Spider Solitaire - Windows Classic
Spider Solitaire is Game of windows computer that you can play in phone or your gadget now, so you don't need computer or laptop to play this game.
The main purpose of the game is to remove all cards from the table, assembling them in the tableau before removing them. Initially, 54 cards are dealt to the tableau in ten piles, face down except for the top cards. The tableau piles build down by rank, and in-suit sequences can be moved together. The 50 remaining cards can be dealt to the tableau ten at a time when none of the piles are empty.
Spider Solitaire uses two standard 52 card decks of playing cards without jokers. In the opening deal, 44 cards are dealt face down into 10 tableau columns with an additional 10 cards dealt face up, one on each column. The remaining 50 cards become the stock.
The object of the game is to expose all cards and move them to the foundation piles by assembling cards of the same suit in complete runs from King to Ace within the columns of the tableau. Once a complete run is made, the cards in that run are automatically moved to the foundation piles. When all completed runs have been moved from the tableau to the foundation piles, the game is won.
During game play, cards facing up may be moved between the columns of the tableau by building runs of cards downward in decreasing rank, for example: 4-3-2-A , 10-9-8-7-6, K-Q-J, etc. When building runs in the tableau, cards may be moved individually or in groups, and any suit can be placed on top of any other suit. However, only runs of cards that are in proper decreasing rank order and of the same suit may be moved together as a group. An empty column may be filled by any card or run of cards that are eligible to be moved.
Cards from the stock are dealt by tapping the stacks of cards representing the stock. Cards from the stock are dealt in sets of 10, one card to each column of the tableau. Cards may be dealt from the stock at any time as long as all of the tableau columns contain at least one card.
The hint feature is intended to aid the player in identifying available moves which can be made in the playing area. Tap the button labeled Hint to activate the hint mechanism. The hint mechanism was not designed to show all available moves, only those deemed to possibly be productive in arriving at a solution. Furthermore, the number of hints shown is limited to 5 in order for the player not to have to wait an extended amount of time to resume play.
During game play, points are earned by revealing down cards and moving completed runs of King to Ace to the foundations. Points are deducted for each use of Undo. When a deal is completed, bonus points are awarded based on number of moves and the time necessary to complete the deal. The more efficiently you solve a deal both in moves and time, the higher your bonus points will be. Bonus points increase based on the level of difficulty for each of the different games. 1-Suit being the easiest, 4-Suit the hardest.
the scoring is calculated with a starting score of 500. One point is subtracted for each move; 100 points are added for each set removed. This gives a theoretical maximum of 1254 points (assuming all 50 cards from the decks are dealt exactly into place)
