Double Solitaire is a two-player fast-paced card game. The object of this double solitaire game, also known as "Spit", is to get rid of all your cards, playing as fast as you can to the two discard piles, while your opponent is also playing as fast as they can onto the same two discard piles. Discards must be played in sequence, either up or down, regardless of suit. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins.
Before you can play the game, one player, the host, must start a game. Learn more about hosting this game.
After the host has started the server, each player should start the Double Solitaire game on their own computer and enter the port, IP address, and player name exactly as instructed by the host.
Players are arranged in the order in which they join the game. Cards will be deealt when the last person arrives.
One standard deck of fifty-two cards is dealt to two players. Each player starts with a draw pile of eleven cards, and five stockpiles of five, four, three, two, and one cards. Only the top card of each stockpile is face up.
The object of the game is to get rid of all your cards, both your draw pile and your stockpiles, playing as fast as you can to the two discard piles in the middle, while your opponent is also playing as fast as they can onto the same two discard piles.
Move cards by dragging them with your mouse and dropping them at least halfway over their intended destination. For example, to drop a card on a discard pile, you must overlap your dragged card at least halfway onto the marked discard area. The server will determine whose card was dropped on the discard pile first.
To begin the game, both players must drag a card from their draw pile to a discard pile. Both players may then start playing their stock pile cards.
You must eventually play a stock pile card if you have one that plays. The game will tell you to "Play a card" if it sees a card that plays, even if it is just to move a card to a different stockpile or to turn a card face up.
If neither player can play a card, both players will be prompted to play a card from their draw pile. At that time, players that have cards remaining in their draw pile must drag a card from their draw pile to a discard pile before play resumes.
Play stops if one player gets rid of all their stockpiles but still has cards in their draw pile. Their opponent must then click either discard pile to indicate they are aware that the other player played all their stockpiles. The cards from the smaller discard pile will then be given to the player who played all their stockpiles, and the cards from the larger discard pile will be given to their opponent. Each player's cards are then shuffled and laid out into new draw piles and stockpiles, and play resumes.
The winner is the first player to get rid of all their draw pile cards and all their stockpile cards.
