Spider 2-Suits SoliTaire! Rules:
Form eight sets of cards of the same suit from King to Ace within the Columns.
Using two decks (4 sets from King to Ace in Hearts, and 4 sets in Spades,) ten Columns of cards are dealt 5 or 6 cards each. The first four Columns are dealt 6 cards, the next six Columns are dealt 5 cards each. All cards are dealt face down except for the last card in each Column
Every click on the Stock will deal one card to each Column. Click on the Stock after no more moves are possible (or desirable) in the layout. All Columns must contain at least one card before the cards will be dealt. There are no redeals.
Columns are built DOWN in ANY SUIT. However, since the goal is to build sets of cards in the same suit, you should prefer building down in the same suit.
The topmost card of each Column is always available for play. Also, cards of the same suit and in sequence may be moved to another Column provided the above build rule applies. For example, an 8, 7, and 6 of Spades may move to any 9. However, an 8 of hearts, 7 and 6 of Spades may not move as a unit because they are not all of the same suit.
Sequences may be split apart once formed. For example, in a sequence of 8, 7, 6 of Spades, the 7 and 6 may be split apart from the 8 in order to be played to another 8.
When a sequence of King through Ace in the same suit is formed within a Column, it is removed from the layout.
Empty Columns may be filled with any card or movable sequence of cards. All Columns must contain a card before more cards can be dealt from the Stock.
One point is scored for each card built within a Column starting with a King. For example, if a Column has a K, Q, and J of the same suit in sequence then three points are scored for that combination. A full set of King through Ace in the same suit is 13 points.
Spider 2-Suits plays identically to standard Spider Solitaire except only two suits are used (Hearts and Spades) instead of 4.
