Double Scorpion game info

  • Family: Spider Solitaire Games
  • Decks: 2 decks (104 cards)
  • Game time: Medium
  • Chance of winning: High

Goal

Form 8 in-suit runs of 13 cards in descending order (from King to Ace). This is similar to Spider Solitaire, except that completed runs are not removed from the tableau.

Layout & deal

There is no foundation. The tableau has ten piles. All cards are dealt at the beginning. The first 4 columns are dealt 11 cards each, and the last 6 columns 10 cards each. The top 4 cards in the first 5 columns are dealt face-down, all other cards are dealt face-up.

Allowable moves

  • Building is done by suit, in descending order.
  • Any face-up card is playable, also if the cards on top of it are not in order or not in the same suit. This rule is the same as in Yukon solitaire.
  • An empty tableau column can be filled with any king or a sequence of cards starting with a king.

Strategy

  • Expose face-down cards: At the start, focus on uncovering the face-down cards as soon as possible.
  • Be careful with aces: Once you expose an ace, you cannot put any card on top of it, so be careful of uncovering them too early in the game.
  • Reverse sequences: Don’t make blocks with reverse sequences

Variants
