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 only on an AceHeart Suit).

Tableau (3 rows of 12 cards each)

  • Build down in suit (for example, a 10Spades Suit can be played on a JackSpades Suit) from an available card to another in a higher row.

  • A card is available only if there is a gap immediately below it in the row underneath.

  • All the cards in the bottom row are therefore available.

  • A card may only be placed on one which is available and lies in a higher row than itself, not in the same row or on a lower one.

  • A space can be filled with any card from the waste or from cards available lies in a lower row.

Stock

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

  • There is no redeal.

Waste (One pile)

  • The top card is available for play to the tableau.
