Tips

Same suit sequences should be preferred even though building is down regardless of suit.  The foundations are built up in suit.

 

History

Spidike is a type of cross between Spider and Klondike.  The tableau building rules and the dealing of cards to the tableau is Spider (or Spiderette) like, but the tableau starts out much like Klondike.  The game is much more challenging with the KingOnly option set.  Spidike was invented by Thomas Warfield.
