This game bears no resemblance to the one-pack Spiderette or the two-pack Spider, and thus, those games should not be confused with this one. The aim is to build the aces up in suit to kings and the kings down is suit to aces, both by suit.

Set up[edit]

There are three rows of four cards in this game and the foundations are placed in the middle row.

Play[edit]

  • First, remove the two red aces and two black kings from the pack and place them in the foundations.
  • The kings are built down to ace while the aces are built up to kings, in both cases by suit. Game play in this part is composed strictly of moving cards from the two rows to the foundations. Cards from the upper row can be placed on any of the foundations, while cards from the lower row can only be placed on the foundations directly on top of it. Once possible plays are made, eight new cards are dealt from the stock, one on each pile, empty or otherwise. Once the entire stock is dealt, the second part of game play begins.
  • At the second part of game play, cards from both rows can be placed on the foundations as well as around the piles at both rows, building either up or down regardless of suit at the piles. Building is also continuous as a king can be placed over an ace and vice versa.
  • The game is won when all cards made their way to the foundations.
