I have been able to find an excellent webpage on Spider tips at
http://www.semicolon.com/Solitaire/Articles/Spider .html

However, in order to follow the sample game, one must download Solitaire till Dawn onto a Mac (which I don't have). I have found many of the tips to be useful.

For example, they explain that not playing a king to an empty column is "not a hard and fast rule". Sometimes, it is the only way to make progress. Other times, other factors compensate, such as being able to better organize the cards.

I have played numerous games with Microsoft's version of the game, by now.

Does anyone else have any interesting comments, tips, suggestions, sample games, etc.? I can't find very many websites that discuss Spider.

Apparently the same game is demonstrated with reference to Pretty Good Solitaire (Windows) at http://1-2-3-free-spider-solitaire.com/strategy.ht m - but this is not the game that my version of PGsol starts with.

Does anyone have the number of the game they are referring to - which could be entered into Pretty Good Solitaire?

the only advice I would give is; To win A game of Spider, you must uncover/see every card; abiding by any strict rule will hinder winning; todd&becky norwich UK

If someone has a Mac, could they please download Solitaire 'til dawn, and then report here what game they are referring to, giving both the initial setup and the moves?
