# What is the name of this patience style 2 deck card game

I was playing a card game online but I don't know the name.

• The game is played with two decks.
• Approx 1 dealt face up in 10 columns with the rest kept for dealing but only 5 at a time despite 10 columns.
• Cards can only be moved to the next card in suit (you build packs from K to Ace), but you can move an entire column of non suited cards on top.
• Only Kings can go in column spaces.
• Full suit doesn't leave the game until it is full and free if additional cards on top of it.
• Here is a list of solitaire variants: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_patience_games – Toon Krijthe Nov 1 '17 at 8:38
• Not sure what "Approx 1 dealt face up in 10 columns" means...did you mean "1 dealt face up in approx 10 columns"? (assuming approx mean approximately) – joedragons Nov 3 '17 at 19:44
• 10 columns face up but i can't remember how many cards in each. Sorry. – Solitaire Nov 3 '17 at 21:34

Sounds like the game you are thinking of could be Spider Solitaire or a variant of it.

The game:

• is a solo style Patience/Solitaire game
• is played with two decks
• consists of 10 columns
• cards are stacked with like suited cards from K to Ace in order to remove them
• Only Kings may be placed on empty spaces

A common game may look like this at the start (Source Wikipedia):

Sidenote: If you want to give spider Solitaire a go, try searching for it from your start menu. Some versions of Windows have the game installed by default.

• No sorry marco the cards are dealt face up. – Solitaire Nov 3 '17 at 21:35
• @Solitaire The cards are dealt face up, with the majority of the cards being kept in the stack. When you pull from the stack you add a new card to each column. Perhaps you played a variant where all the cards were in the stack instead of most? – Malco Nov 5 '17 at 17:17
