Editors' Review

+

Free Spider Solitaire offers five different versions of Spider, the popular solitaire variant played with two or more decks of cards. This bundle stands out from other free Spider games by virtue of an attractive, up-to-date interface, customizable cards and backgrounds, and a Help file that provides rules, tips, and odds. You can play Rouge et Noir, Simple Simon, and One Suit, Two Suits, or Four Suits Spider.

Pros

Score and time: Free Spider Solitaire's expanding (and optional) Ribbon-style toolbar also keeps score and time. The toolbar also let us customize card decks and change the card table green background.

Rules and ratings: We chose Rouge et Noir on the Select a Solitaire dialog, which displayed the game's layout and factors like Game Time (Long), Difficulty Level (Hard), and our chance of winning (2%). More game info can be found in the Help file.

Help and more: Program data, rules of play, object of the game, and other information (including Hints and Tips) are a few clicks away under Help.

Cons

Email address: A Web page asks for your email address to complete the installation process, but you don't need to provide it or otherwise register to use this freeware. Don't be surprised to receive "special offers" (aka spam) if you submit your email address.

Bottom Line

Free Spider Solitaire is an attractive program with helpful features and extras. It's a great introduction to this popular style of solitaire that's also challenging enough for experienced players.

"A great substitute of the old Spider"

October 22, 2015  |  By ritva_2015

2015-10-22 04:03:03  |  By ritva_2015

 |  Version: Free Spider Solitaire 5.1

Pros

I had lost my old Spider game, and found Free Spider here on Cnet. It's a great substitute for my old game, it works on Windows 10 very well and it has a couple of games that I didn't know but already love. I'm nearly more hooked on Simple Simon than I was on Spider two suits!
Ah! and it has some extra card designs - really neat!

Cons

My free time is not enough to play as much as I'd like to!

Summary

If you love Spider, you have to try tis one. It's a keeper!

"No 3rd Chances....limited opportunities to win"

October 19, 2015  |  By pc4proficiency

 |  Version: Free Spider Solitaire 5.1

Pros

I suppose if you have NEVER played any other version of spider solitaire then you might tolerate this one, but.....

Cons

You only get one undo per card move. I am used to having all the undos i want. Its very hard to win when you can't undo as much as you like and need.

Summary

I am used to winning every single one suit spider solitaire I play and over 90% of the 2 suits, and atleast 50% of the 4 suits. I couldn't even win the one suit, what with 6 kings on the first deal and a 7th on the 2nd deal, i never had a chance. Try allowing multiple undos and it might be a nice game? but for me, its already been uninstalled!

 |  Version: Free Spider Solitaire 5.1

Pros

Clean interface, one-click moves, applauds you when you win!

Cons

I seem to win every game I play, whereas in the old Windows version I managed only 2/3. Card fall seems almost too good to be true: the right combination seems to always turn up :-)

card backs.
