Levels

1 Suite – Easy

This is the first level of the game. Also, it’s the easiest one, so if you are a beginner we strongly advise you to try it before other medium-hard levels. Why? In this stage, the game is functioning only with one deck of cards, meaning that you can make the winning combinations faster. Here, you play just with the spades. You can move the cards with one condition, to count a point! For example, you can move the 10 of spades over the Ace of spades. There is a possibility to move a sequence of descending cards if you need to make other good combinations. After getting the game, move up to the harder levels and be a pro!

2 Suits – Medium

This is the most frequently played variation of Spider. Why? Players try the enhance the level of the difficulty by playing Spider with 2 decks of cards. They are going to be mixed and placed in the upper line. To start playing it, press on the cards found in the left corner of the screen and start to make descending combinations. For example, a sequence like K, Q, J,…..,3,2,1 is a winning one. You can click directly on the cards to join the other one which is bigger than it. The level of difficulty is medium, so it won’t be easy, but it won’t be hard enough to make all the 8 descending combinations and win it.

4 Suits – Hard

Feeling the heat of this game? If you gained experience previously, then you should try out the harder version. You have to play it with 3 decks of cards, and 4 suits. The game is more complex, but it will give each player a bigger satisfaction if they manage to defeat it.
