## Convergence assessment in different variants of Spider solitaire

With proper unfolding, almost any Spider solitaire converges, but this applies to the type of game where one suit is used. This is possible with the following factors in mind:

• A user does not allow errors;

• The specified layout is generated in a special way and obeys a number of predefined rules.

If the first criterion directly depends on the user, the second criterion will depend on the software developer.

The Spider layout convergence will directly depend on the generation of a game software developer. In order to substantially increase the level of convergence, it is necessary to specify a generation of distribution in which the cards that lie on the table in a closed state, as well as in the decks below were uniform. So, with competent generation, the convergence level of suited layout can reach 99%. In most cases, if players will use the "cancel move" function, the probability of winning is very high.

A slightly different situation is for those games in which two suits and four suits are used. So, in a game where two suits are used, the probability of winning is 60-70%. And in a complicated game where four suits are used, the probability of

winning can reach 30%.

We must not forget that in many ways everything will depend not only on a generation of layouts but also on a skill of the player. Train more using complex layouts, and you will notice that the probability of their convergence will gradually increase.
