In the hand and in the columns, there will simultaneously be four suits: spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds. The user will be able to move cards regardless of suits, guided only by sequences: an ace onto a two, a queen onto a king and so on. But you will be able to collect a combination and send it to the Foundation only from the cards of the same suit, which complicates the task. The Spider Solitaire version with four-suit layout is a complex game that requires logic, strategic thinking, attention and good memory.
In four-suit Spider Solitaire, the number of non-winning layouts is much higher compared to the one or two suit versions: they make up to 70%. As in the simpler versions, several cards of the same rank will simultaneously be on the tableau: several sixes, sevens or other cards. But they will have different suits and two cards of the same rank and suit will very seldom be given to the player at the very beginning of the game.
Then the possibilities of movements to collect correct sequences are assessed. In the case where the move flips over face up one of the cards in the column, or even empties the cell, you should give preference to it. In four-suit Spider Solitaire you will have to make a lot of complex movements to get correct sequences and flip over new cards and empty cells.
In this case, it is possible to try several combinations of moves and assess their consequences. Sometimes other moves help to flip more cards over or even empty cells in the future, although at first their advantage was not obvious. In addition, this way you can spy upon some blocked positions in the columns and keep them in mind for correct moves in the future.
It is worth paying particular attention to aces, as these cards in the wrong sequence block the cards that are under them in the columns, preventing them from moving. In four-suit layouts, it is wort moving an Ace onto a two of different suit only if that move flips over a new card face up or empties the cell. Whereas in the two-suit version, it is almost always worth doing this.
