The card game Spider Solitaire is a weakness of mine. Something about placing cards in order is soothing. I shudder to think how many hours of my life have been lost to playing this card game. To make the activity more productive, I decided to make looking at each card a quick reminder of Korean vocabulary.
Numbers (native Korean and Chinese)
There are two decks of cards used to play Spider Solitaire. That is 104 cards.
You can simply use 2 decks of cards and write your vocabulary on each card. Another option is to make your own with a blank deck or choose from the decks I have created below. Of course, these cards can be used for any card game you like.
How to play Spider Solitaire
At the beginning, deal out cards into 10 piles. There are 6 cards in the first 4 piles, and 5 cards in the remaining 6 piles. Valid moves are moving a card onto a card of higher rank. For example, you could move a 7 of clubs onto an 8 of clubs, hearts, or spades. The goal is to get runs of cards in the same suit. When there are no more moves, you deal out from the stock deck. Beginner mode uses only one suit, intermediate two suits, and 4 suits in advanced mode. Game is won when you stack the runs of cards from Ace to King.
