What is Spider Solitaire?

Spider Solitaire is a mobile card game that puts a spin on the more traditional game of Solitaire. Spider Solitaire is played with two decks of cards, and the object of the game is to complete 13-card runs in descending order, from king to ace, for a single suit; once you’ve completed a run, that suit is removed from your game. The goal is to complete these full-suit runs for all eight suits (remember, you’re playing with two decks, which is why there are eight, rather than four, suits).

Spider Solitaire is one of many games available to our Fetch Play gamers. To browse our gaming library and see which games are available to you today and start getting rewarded for playing games on your phone, download Fetch Play!

What is the Difference Between Spider Solitaire and Regular Solitaire?

There are a two key differences between Spider Solitaire and standard Solitaire:

  • Standard Solitaire is played with only one deck of cards, while Spider Solitaire utilizes two decks.
  • In standard Solitaire, you are building alternating-color runs (red, black, red, and so on) in descending order on the game board, while in Spider Solitaire, you are building same-suit runs for all eight suits (two 13-card sets of spades, two 13-card sets of hearts, and so on), which makes Spider Solitaire more difficult.

More Spider Solitaire Hacks, Tips & Tricks

If you’ve ever played regular Solitaire (and even if you haven’t), Spider Solitaire is fairly intuitive, and it won’t take you long to get the hang of gameplay. That said, there are a few questions that we often get asked about the “trick” to playing the game, so here are answers to some of the more common FAQs about Spider Solitaire.


How to Play Spider Solitaire and Win / What is the Trick to Spider Solitaire?

There are several tips and tricks to keep in mind when playing Spider Solitaire that can help improve your ratio of wins to losses:

  • Keep your eyes open and pay attention: Since the object of the game is to complete all eight 13-card suits as quickly as possible, you’ll need to pay close attention in order to not miss any opportunities that will help you build toward completing your runs.
  • Start building on higher cards first: You have more opportunity to stack cards when you build off of the highest face-up cards; you have far fewer opportunities when you’re building off of lower cards.
  • Turn over face-down cards as soon as possible: Flipping over your face-down cards creates more opportunities for you to build your runs, so the sooner you get cards face-up, the better.
  • Move Kings to open columns: Kings cannot be stacked on other cards, and as mentioned above, you want to build off your high cards first, so moving Kings to open spaces as soon as you can takes both of these elements into account.
  • Complete runs as quickly as possible: While this may seem obvious, the sooner you complete your runs, the sooner they can be removed from the board, allowing you to potentially turn over additional face-down cards (if your run was blocking any face-down cards) and clear up space for new runs.
  • Empty columns as soon as you can: Empty columns or spaces can come in handy, as they offer additional “storage” for you while moving cards around the board. Because of that, they are premium real estate.

How Often is Spider Solitaire Winnable?

On average, Spider Solitaire is winnable approximately 8 out of every 10 games, or 80% of the time. It’s not possible to win every game, no matter how skilled you are, as there is still that element of chance involved.

Following the tips outlined above (see under “How to Play Spider Solitaire and Win”) will set yourself up for success more often than not. And remember, the more milestones you complete when playing Spider Solitaire with Fetch Play, the quicker you’ll start earning rewards, so study up!


Can Players Use Jokers in Spider Solitaire?

While in many card games, Jokers act as wild cards, this is not the case for Spider Solitaire. In fact, Jokers are not commonly a part of any version of Solitaire.


Is Spider Solitaire Good for Your Brain?

There are several benefits of playing Spider Solitaire, in addition to it being a great way to earn free gift cards when you play with Fetch Play:

  • Can be a stress-reducer: Playing games on your phone can be a relaxing way to unwind on your lunch break or at the end of the day, which is one of the reasons Spider Solitaire is such a widely-popular mobile game.
  • Can promote problem-solving: Spider Solitaire and other variations of the game essentially task you with piecing together a “puzzle” (in this case, completing the eight same-suit runs), which requires you to use critical thinking skills, think ahead, and anticipate what your next several moves should be.
  • Can help improve concentration: As you work to complete your same-suit runs while being timed when playing Spider Solitaire, you need to stay focused on the task at hand and pay attention to every detail in order to try and complete the game in record time and beat your personal best.
