Introduction to Spider Solitaire 1 Suit

Spider Solitaire can be played at three different levels of difficulty: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.
This easier version is meant for the beginner player. Players who just want to relax and be entertained might enjoy this version.

This 1-suit version is played with two 52-card decks of standard playing cards, all of the 104 cards are Hearts. For most, this makes winning rather easy.
For those who do want more of a challenge, they can move up to the 2-suit Intermediate level.

It is recommended that the player who has never played the game before should start at this level to get a good feel for the game. Then, if they wish, they can move up to a harder level.

The Layout, Goal, and Rules are described in the introduction for Spider Solitaire 2 Suits.

Beginner's Spider Solitaire Strategy (1-suit)

Please refer to Spider Solitaire 2 Suits and to Spider Solitaire 4 suits for more advanced strategy and tips.

  • Simply playing the most obvious move may not the best strategy. Before making a move, look over the current game state to see what else might be available. If possible, find a combination of moves that, when played, will result in something useful, such as turning a hidden card or vacating a column.
  • The Ace has the distinction that it is the only card onto which another rank cannot be placed by the player. This makes Aces very pesky. They can often cause problems because if one is at the bottom of a column, no cards can be moved to that column.
  • Be wary of the King. It's the only rank that cannot be moved onto another rank. It can often block access to many cards. When it does, moving the King to a vacant column should be given a high priority.
  • Don't give up too quickly. If a game reaches a point where winning seems hopeless, playing on with a little ingenuity and patience can sometimes result in a victory.
