  • Move cards on the tableau so that they are placed in descending order.
  • Place cards in suited stacks so that you can move the suited runs at once.
  • Draw cards from the reserves when you can not make any other moves.
  • Complete a suited run from King to Ace to remove the cards from the tableau.
  • Build all 8 foundations before time runs out.

  • Game Play
    • Dealing
      • 54 cards are dealt to the tableau in 10 stacks of 5 or 6 cards each. Only the top card is face up. Each time you remove a card the next card underneath is turned up.
      • 50 cards are dealt to the reserves.
      • Since this game is four suited you must complete 2 foundations of each of the suits: Spades, Hearts, Clubs & Diamonds.
      • This game has a 30 minute time limit.
    • Playing
      • On the tableau any card or consecutive descending suited stack of cards can be moved onto another stack provided it is in consecutive descending order & is one below the bottom card on the column you are moving it to.
        • Early in the game try to turn over as many cards as you can on the tableau before dealing from the reserves as it can be hard to turn cards over after stacks have been buried with many plays from the reserves. Having one or two really ugly rows on the tableau while keeping other rows clean gives you lots of flexibility with your moves, particularly if you can create empty columns on the tableau.
        • Try to keep tableau stacks suited whenever possible so that it makes it easier to complete flushes.
        • If there is a card in the stack which is not in proper descending order you must remove it from the stack before you can play other cards above it.
        • You can move any card at the bottom of the stack (or any sequential suited descending run of cards) to an empty column on the tableau.
        • Creating an empty column early allows you to resort other columns.
      • When you click on the reserves it deals a card to the bottom of each of the stacks on the tableau.
        • There are 5 sets of 10 cards dealt at a time.
      • When playing cards on the tableau it generally makes sense to try to clear at least one column as quickly as possible as that enables you to use the empty column to re-organize the cards in other columns.
        • By creating an empty column you can use it to help put other columns which use multiple suits into new stacks which are suited.
        • This also allows you to clean up many messes made by out-of-order cards dealt from the reserves ruining some sequences you had in place.
      • If you are uncertain the better move between a couple parallel options you can use the move undo button, though it can only be used thrice throughout the entire game.
    • Undo moves
      • The undo move button can be used up to 3 times.
      • The undo move button does not recharge, so use it carefully!
    • Scoring
      • Each foundation you build is worth 130 points, for a maximum base score of 1,040 points.
      • Your remaining time when you beat the game is also worth points.
    • Difficulty
      • This game is exceptionally hard. 30 minutes is a long time to beat the game, but the 4 suited version of Spider Solitaire is significantly harder than the 1 or 2 suit version of the game.
      • Only around 1 in 20 4-suit games are winnable given you can’t restart the same deal and are given only 3 move undoes, whereas around 99% of 2-suit games and almost 100% of 1-suti games are winnable.
      • There are 10^100 unique single suit games, 10^126 unique 2 suit games, and 10^145 unique 4 suit games, so while the goal of the game is the same, each game can feel quite unique.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like Spider Solitaire card games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
