How to Play Big Spider

Game Objective

Remove all cards by creating complete sequences. Leave none in the stock or tableaus.

Tableau Rules

  • There are thirteen tableaus.
  • Any card may move to an empty tableau.
  • The tableaus build down by rank regardless of suit. Complete sequences of the same suit starting with a King and ending with an Ace are automatically removed.
  • For example the 9♠ may move onto the 10♠, 10♥, 10♣ and 10♦. Starting with the 9♥ the following sequence can build on top 8♠ 7♠ 6♦ 5♣.
  • Sequences of cards built down by the same suit can move together as a group.

Stock Rules

  • The stock deals one card face up to each of the tableaus when tapped. Every tableau must have at least one card before dealing from the stock.
