Solitaire Rules

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

  • Study the tableau to determine the starting card for each foundation. There must be two foundations per suit. The starting card (base cards) for each of the 8 foundations may be different.

  • The card which appears in the box above a foundation is the card you need to build up to in order to complete the foundation.

  • Build up in suit from the cards you have chosen until each pile contains 13 cards (for example, a 2Heart Suit can be played on an AceHeart Suit).

Reserve (8 piles of 8 cards each)

  • Build up or down in alternating colors (for example, a 10Spades Suit can be played on a JackHeart Suit or on a 9Diamonds Suit).

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

Tableau (8 columns of 5 cards each)

  • Build up or down in alternating colors (for example, a 10Spades Suit can be played on a JackHeart Suit or on a 9Diamonds Suit).

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

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build Aces after Kings when necessary.
