SPIDER SOLITAIRE 4 SUIT
UPDATE 2015: I now play 4 suit spider solitaire in puzzle mode. That means I backtrack as much as necessary to win the game. I now win almost every game I play, using the hints listed below. Here is my new page showing how it works.
No More Moves? DON'T BELIEVE IT. Here's a game I WON AFTER getting that message.
Game Play Hints
Move suited cards first, since they merge into movable units. The results might change your strategy for future moves.
Your goal is a hole, so when you have a choice, work on the pile with the fewest cards underneath.
Kings are dead, so bury them! Before dealing the next round, move as many cards as you can onto the king piles. Also, if you can swap cards, put the mis-matched cards on the king piles and the suited runs on the clean piles.
Here is my personal best stat screen from May 29, 2015. Now that I've reached my goal of 50, it's time to go back to the real world. Good luck, Everyone! Enjoy!
NOTE: These old pages work for Windows XP. I'm not sure about Vista, but Windows 7 and 8 no longer allows for saved games except when you exit the program, so some of this info is outdated. I'm leaving it here for those of you still using vintage technology.
Spider Solitaire has been my game of choice for 30 years. I use the free Windows 8 version. I only play the difficult, 4-suit option.
One day I found a great game, and wanted to share it with my husband. I wanted a way to send my game to his computer. Here's what I found out and how I sent it to him:
Now I save my favorite games. I took some screen shots and made a web page for my Super Challenge game.
I'm smarter, now--put all of my favorite games into a spreadsheet. It looks like I can use Google Base to publish it, so you can share my favorites. I save them at the beginning of the last round, so they play the same for everyone. (You can also start over and play them from scratch.)
For now, you must request them via email, but I'm also trying to put them online for you to download directly. I'll let you know when I figure it out.
NO-WIN SCENARIO. This game cannot be played online, yet, but I'm going to search for a program that will set it up.
Spider Solitaire Challenge Game
I have a new favorite to send out, now. What makes the new one special is that every card plays in the first round. I thought that would make it easy to win, but I had to start over 3 times to make it happen. (Screen shots of this one coming soon.)
