Still out here trying. Have had some nice games in the last few days, consistantly under 95. Had three 90's and an 89 over the past two days. My stats reflect my bias toward low scores: success rate is 47%.
Just had an 87. I should note that my last two 88's and my 87 all came from re-playing the original 88 game. I replayed it half a dozen times, with the highest score being about 92. I've been re-playing all my better games, but this is the first time I was able to improve on the original score by doing so. This 87 had one lateral move in it, so perhaps there is still some slack in the score.
I'm new here. I was looking for the record lowest Spider Solitaire score--and it might be me. I don't know how I did it but I have had an 86 score. I tried to replay that game but could never even get close again. Keep striving, friends, I'm sure there's an 85 out there somewhere!
Congratulations, Auntiegah. Great score. I'm away from home right now and don't have the web address, but a few days ago I found a site with what appear to be a list of the top spider solitaire scores from around the world. As I recall, the top score was a 79. I'll give the address when I get back home. I'm still at 87, and trying to think of new strategies to improve. Do you have any tips?
First, I think 4 suit is much better, but I switched after reading this thread and got an 87 the first day I played. My second best was 90. I think this way is almost completely luck, you just don't move any card that doesn't have a card under it until you have dealt all the cards and try to keep things in the best order possible til the end and then it is a crap shoot. Dumbest game ever. But I am slightly addicted

I remember someone who lost a game of spider by going too good. Cleared out all the cards but 9 and had deals left. She was forced to leave an empty space for the deal which, as you know, is against the rules. Game Over.

Quote: My high score is 1209. I don't remember how many moves it was. Is it always the same number of moves on the score 1209? Or can you get to 1209 in a smaller number of moves?
You'll score 1209 by making 91 moves, every time.
