You play Spider Solitaire using two decks of cards.
Depending on how difficult you want the game to be, one, two or all four suits can be used.
This game uses all four suits so you are going to find it is rather difficult to win!!
The cards are laid out in ten columns. The cards are face down except the top card in each column which is face up. The remaining cards are placed in the top left corner of the table.
In order to win Spider Solitaire, you are going to have to remove all the cards from the table by setting up the columns so they are organized in descending order, from king to ace. The cards must also match by suit.
When you do manage to build a sequentially ordered column it gets removed from the table.
If you run out of moves to make, you can click the pile at the top of the table and you will be dealt a new row of cards.
When a group of cards are all the same suit and in numeric order, you can move them around together. Otherwise, you are limited to moving just one at a time.
Love them or hate them, you've got to admit that spiders are pretty impressive animals.
Did you know that you're never more than ten feet away from a spider. To be "spider-safe" you would have to go to Antarctica.
There are now about 40,000 named species of spiders worldwide including 3,000 species in North America. It is thought that there are still many more species of spiders waiting to be identified and named.
Unlike insects, spiders cannot fly but they can balloon! They pull out silk until the breeze lifts them into the sky. Although they don't usually travel far, some have been seen at altitudes of 10,000 feet and on ships more than 200 miles from land.
When a spider is moving there are always four legs on the surface and four legs off of it.
It is well known that spiders have multiple eyes, but not all species are the same. In fact, the number of eyes range from eight to zero, most common spiders have only six, while some cave dwelling species have no eyes at all.
Spider silk is possibly the strongest material in the world! If you gathered the same weight of spider web as a piece of steel, the web would be much stronger than the steel. As hard as scientists try, they cannot match or copy the silk.
Daddy Long Legs are not spiders, or even insects, at all. They are part of the Arachnid family but in a different class. They are called Harvestmen. Their legs have seven sections which they can break off to surprise or distract a predator.
Most spiders live for one year, but some can live 3 to 4 years, and certain tarantulas are known to live for 25 years or longer.
Spiders eat more insects than birds and bats combined eat. They play a big role in controlling insect populations.
