Top  Previous  Next

2 Decks.  Medium (50%).  Mostly Skill.

 

Object

To group all the cards in sets of 13 cards in sequence down in suit from King to Ace.

 

Layout

10 tableau piles - build down regardless of suit.  Groups of cards in sequence down in suit may be moved as a unit.  A space can be filled by any card or legal group of cards.  At the start of the game 5 cards each are dealt face up to each pile.

 

stock (top left, face down) - deals 1 card to each non-empty tableau pile by clicking.  No cards are dealt to empty tableau piles.

 

Notes

Whenever a sequence of 13 cards down in suit from King to Ace is formed, it will automatically be removed from play.

 

Tips

Same suit sequences should be preferred even though building is down regardless of suit.  The object is to build down in suit sequences.

 

Spaces should be made as soon as possible.  Note that since cards are not dealt to empty spaces from the stock, once a space is created it will remain until cards are moved there.

 

History

Grounds for Divorce is a variation of Spider.  It differs from Spider in the initial layout and most importantly, in that cards are not dealt to empty tableau spaces from the stock.
