1.6  Spider – Solitaire Card Game

To play Spider, run the PLT Games program. (Under Unix, it’s called plt-games).

Spider is a solitaire card game played with 104 cards. The cards can include either a single suit, two suits, or four suites. (Choose your variant through the Options item in the Edit menu.)

Terminology:

The object of the game is to create a sequence with ace through king, at which point the sequence is removed from play. Create eight such sequences to win the game.

On each move, you can take one of the following actions:

To move a sequence, either drag it to the target tableau, or click the sequence and then click the top card of the target tableau (or the place where a single card would be for an empty tableau). Click a select card to de-select it. Clicking a card that is not a valid target for the currently selected sequence causes the clicked card’s sequence to be selected (if the card is face up in a sequence).

To deal, click the deck.

To undo a move, use Undo from the Edit menu.
