The object of Spider Solitaire is to remove cards from play in the fewest moves possible. Line up runs of cards from king through ace in the same suit to remove them. At higher difficulty settings, you can also alternate red and black suits to line up, turn over, and move cards, but you still need runs to remove cards.

This version allows the user to choose one of three difficulty settings. Easy mode is played with eight sets (Ace through King) of Spades; Medium mode uses four sets each of Hearts and Spades; and Hard mode is played with two standard decks. Microsoft Spider Solitaire allows moves to be retracted, except when dealing a new row or completing a run (ace to king sequence, which is then removed.) Any number of moves can be retracted, back to the last non-retractable move. Therefore, a possible strategy is to expose as many face-down cards as possible, retracting afterward, before choosing a move.
