How to play


Goal. In Spider, the goal is to remove all the cards from the table by creating "runs." 


NOTE: each run needs to be organized in descending order from King to Ace


Difficulty level. You can choose to play on Easy difficulty (1 suit), Medium (2 suits), or Hard (4 suits). 


NOTE: the higher the difficulty, the higher the score


Movement. You can pick up cards and move them between columns as long as they stack in the proper sequence (K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, A).


Runs. In games with more than one suit, runs need to be of the same suit to be considered complete. Completed runs are automatically removed from the table for you.


Suits. You can mix different suits within the same card sequence. Just remember that a run has to be entire of the same suit to be removed from the table.


Empty columns. If you ever have an empty column, you can place any card or sequential stack there. There is no limit as to how many cards you can move at once.


No more moves. If you run out of moves, tap one of the stockpiles in the upper left corner to deal a new row of cards. 

      

NOTE: be careful - you can't deal a new row while any columns are empty
