Vintage 1 Spider is a solitaire game in which the goal is to arrange all of the cards in the same suit in descending runs from King to Ace.
When a run is completed, such as from King of Clubs to Ace of Clubs, the entire run is removed from the table. The game is over when the table is completely empty.
Vintage 1 Spider is played with two full decks of cards, totaling 104 cards. The first 54 cards are divided into 10 tableaus, with the first four tableaus having six cards each and the remaining six tableaus having five cards each. Each tableau's top card is turned face up, while the others are turned face down. The remaining 50 cards are stacked at the top of the screen in stock.
