Tarantula Rules

An easier version of Spider

Tarantula Terms

 

General Rules

Uses 2 packs of cards.

The Stock deals up to 10 cards at a time to the Tableau Stacks.

When empty, the Stock cannot be restocked.

Cards cannot be played directly to (or from) the Collection Piles.

 

How to Win

The game is won when each Collection Pile shows an Ace:

 

Building the Tableau Stacks

Only face-up cards are playable.

Sequences of cards can be built in descending value, if they share the same color.

A group of cards can be moved if they are in descending value and share the same color.

A group of cards can be moved to another stack, as long as the result builds in descending value and same color.

Complete King-to-Ace sequences in the same color are automatically removed to a Collection Pile.

Any single card can be moved to an empty Stack.

A group of cards can be moved to an empty Stack if the cards build down in descending value and have the same color.

 

Dealing

Dealing will deal out one card to each Tableau Stack, from the Stock.

Cards cannot otherwise be moved from (or to) the Stock.

Cards cannot be dealt from the Stock if there are any empty Tableau Stacks.

 

Hints & Tips

Whenever possible, try to build Tableau Stack sequences in the same color.

Uncover face-down cards as soon as you can.

Deal out cards to the Tableau only as a last resort.

Create empty Tableau Stacks early, and don't put Kings on the empty Stacks too soon.
