Some thing about solitaire

Post by Admin on Wed Jun 29, 2016 3:50 pm

Klondike solitaire turn one, or simply Solitaire, is the classic solitaire game. Klondike is probably the best known solitaire game in the world. The rules of this game are known to almost everyone.

Not all games of Klondike Solitaire are solvable. Playing Klondike game involves a lot of guesswork and it is the main reason why you do not win the vast majority of the games.

About half the Four Suit Spider solitaire games are winnable. The key to winning Spider games is to be able to create spaces in the tableau. Spaces allow the player to get cards of the same suit together and to untangle the layout. The columns where spaces might be created must be kept as short as possible while other columns especially the columns having kings can be kept long.
Order in which card building should occur.

Build cards on cards of the same suit.

Build with cards that can be built on more than one card.

Build on kings.

Build on cards that can have the most cards built upon them.

Build on columns where it is unlikely that a facedown card could be uncovered.

Build on cards that are on the longest columns.

Build on cards with the highest ranks.

It is not always good to build cards. It might be good to not to move cards that are on columns where creating a space in the near future is impossible. If a card covers a king or a complex sequence of cards, you might not want to build with that card if the building means decreasing the probablity of getting a space elsewhere.

Fill spaces with cards that have a good chance of being picked up again and thus create a space. If you are playing Spider with the Solitaire Games of Skill program, check the table to see the number of cards for each rank that are not faceup. Try to fill spaces with cards for which there are a large number of cards one rank above that are not yet faceup and thus are likely to appear in the next deal. The cards one rank above could be used to pickup the card you are using to fill a space. For example in the screenshot below, it is tempting to fill the space with the six of spades in column eight and thus uncover a facedown card. But according to the table there would be only a 36% chance that play would continue if the six were placed in the space. A better strategy would be to fill the space with a card which would have a good chance of being picked up again and thus create a space on the next deal. Of the cards available to fill the space the eight of hearts in column two has the largest number of hidden cards that are one rank above according to the table. Thus it might be good to fill the space in the screenshot with the eight of hearts so that one of the four hidden nines might be used to pick up the eight and thus create a space on the next deal. Alternatively fill spaces with cards that can be built back on a column or columns of the present tableau. For example in the screenshot below the seven of clubs in column nine would be a good card to fill the space. The eights in columns two, seven, and nine might be used to pick up the seven and create a space on the next deal. It might be thought that using the table is cheating, but the Solitaire Games of Skill table could be created by the player based on the cards already faceup.
