Solitaire Rules

Foundations (8 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build up in suit from Ace to King (for example, a 2Heart Suit can be played on an AceHeart Suit).

Reserve (the "backbone": 10 pairs and a single card at the bottom to form the "coccyx")

  • Only the "coccyx" is available for play to the tableau (the "ribs") or to the foundations.

  • The bottom card of the "backbone" (the "coccyx") is available for play. Once this card has been played, the pair above it become available for play, and so on up.

  • Spaces are not filled.

Tableau (the "ribs": 4 individual cards on either side of the "backbone")

  • Build down in suit (for example, a 10Spades Suit can be played on a JackSpades Suit) from the stock, the waste or from the "backbone".

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to another tableau pile or to the foundations.

  • Spaces may be filled only from the waste, never from the "backbone".

Stock

  • Turn up one card at a time from the stock to the waste by clicking.

  • One redeal is permitted (two deals in all).

Waste

  • The top card is available for play to the foundations or to the tableau (the "ribs").
