Spider Easy SoliTaire! Rules:
Form eight sets of cards of any suit from King to Ace within the Columns.
Using two decks, 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. The suits do not matter in the Easy version of Spider.
The topmost card of each Column is always available for play. Also, cards of any 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. Also, an 8 of clubs, 7 and 6 of Spades may move as a unit even though they are of differing suits - which is what makes the Easy version easy.
Sequences may be split apart once formed. For example, in a sequence of 8, 7, 6, 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 ANY 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 in sequence then three points are scored for that combination. A full set of King through Ace is 13 points.
The only difference between the Relaxed version and the Easy version is that in the Easy version of the game, the cards may be moved even if the suits don't match, as long as the card ranks are in sequence.
