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 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)

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

You can find the how-to-play rules here:
Bicycle Cards: How to play Spider Solitaire

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

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 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?
