Baby Spiderette Solitaire Rules

| Players: 1 | Type: Solitaire | Supplies: 1 Deck |


The objective of baby spiderette solitaire is to build each king down to aces in suit in the tableau.


Lay out seven tableau piles all face down. The first tableau pile on the left will have one card, each tableau pile has one more card than the last, until you get to the seventh tableau pile with seven cards. Flip the top card of each tableau pile face up. Place the remaining deck face down to form the stock.

Game Play

When there is a sequence built from king to ace in descending order, and all 13 cards are of the same suit, this entire sequence is removed from the game.

The top cards of each tableau are available for play onto another tableau pile. Tableau piles may be built down in sequence regardless of suit, however, a sequence from king to ace may only be removed from the game if all cards are of the same suit. Groups of cards in a sequence, regardless of suit, may be moved together from pile to pile. You may not build a king onto an ace.

When a tableau pile becomes empty, it may be filled with any available card or group of cards in the proper sequence. All empty tableau piles must be filled before dealing from the stock. When there are no more available moves, deal out one card from the stock to each tableau pile. The game is over when all cards are discarded from the game, or the stock is exhausted and there are no more available moves.

To Win

To win baby spiderette solitaire, all cards must be discarded from the game in a sequence from king to ace in suit. If the player exhausts the stock and has no more available moves before all cards are discarded, baby spiderette solitaire is lost.
