Medium

App description

The object of the game is to place all the cards in each suit in columns of descending suit sequence. It involves the player having to spot where cards can be moved to before the next row is dealt.

Reviewers comments

Spider Solitaire is a more complex version of traditional Solitaire. In this game the player is required to place the cards in descending order onto the stacks of cards that are already in play. At each turn the row of 10 cards is covered with a new card and it’s necessary to uncover the cards in the stack by moving cards before the game can be finished. Cards can temporarily be placed on a different suit at the right number level but will need to be moved to its own suit before the set is completed. The game becomes more complex when 2, 3 or 4 suits are in play.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
