What is the best way to play Spider Solitaire? I had to come up with a good explanation.
The Spider game that I am referring to has five suits. There are three “basic” suits. These are a b, c, and d. In addition, there is a sixth secondary suit.
I will not be discussing the latter, the sixteenth secondary suit, as this is something that you should learn about yourself or read about in books. In general, the primary and secondary suits are used interchangeably.
The question is, what is the best way to play this game? Is it possible to play Spider with only one suit? Yes, it is.
I will discuss this in another article and demonstrate how to play Spider with only one suit, but the fact of the matter is that it can be done without even splitting the cards in half or giving separate players the same cards.
As with all games, when you get the hang of the rules, the more difficult it gets. That is the case in this case, too. But, for those who have not yet played Spider, I will give an outline of what it looks like.
First, the basic rules are simple. Each player must choose a single “basic” suit and a single “secondary” suit. Players can use any combination of basic and secondary suits. The idea is to have the highest card of any suit in the lowest possible hand.
When you do this, the numbers one through nine on each hand (the middle cards) will be placed in a stack. The player who does not have that card in their hand must discard that card.
After doing this, it is a good strategy to cover up both of your eyes so that you can look down at the cards in front of you and know that you have two hands. Sometimes a player will be lucky enough to get two cards face up, but this does not happen all the time. So, no matter what, it is better to cover your eyes.
The next set of elementary rules is to play cards from the left side of the deck, looking at the left side cards, with the other cards face down. This makes it much easier to check if the other player puts cards in his hand and to add cards to your hand.
The basic rules of hand management also apply to basic hand management for solitaire games. For instance, it is important to look at both cards at the same time.
This is very similar to the classic version of Spider Solitaire where you were supposed to check all your cards to make sure that you had two suits and to draw all the extra cards in your hand. While a solitaire is not as long and complicated as this classic version, it is still a simple game and one that can be taught.
