There are seven tableau piles, as in Klondike. At the start of the game one card is dealt to the first pile, two cards to the second pile , and so on. The top card is face up. This is exactly like Klondike. The remainder of the cards are face down in a stock (there is no waste pile).
The object is to build 16 foundation piles up in suit from Aces to Kings.
Building in the tableau is down regardless of suit. Groups of cards in sequence down in suit may be moved as a unit (this is like Spider). When a face down card is uncovered, it is automatically turned up and is available for play. Spaces in the tableau are filled by Kings or a group of cards headed by a King.
When there are no plays in the tableau, clicking on the stock deals one card to each tableau pile.
Because only down in suit groups can be moved, building in suit is preferred even though you can build regardless of suit (this is like Spider). An average player can win Spidike 90% of the time and a good player can approach 100%.
Spidike was invented for Pretty Good Solitaire by Thomas Warfield.
