Like Spider Solitaire, Scorpion Solitaire is a column based solitaire card game. There are some differences between the games. In general Scorpion Solitaire is easier to learn because the player doesn't have to worry about the cards he wants to move being a fully packed series. Scorpion is played with a single deck, and all but 3 of the cards are dealt out at the beginning of the game. The cards must be built down by suit. Unlike in Spider Solitaire, cards are not removed during game play, and a column of cards is not removed when it is put in order from King to Ace.
