Solitaire Rules

  • The base card for this game will vary.

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

  • Build the top foundations down in suit (for example, a 7Heart Suit can be played on a 8Heart Suit) from the base card to the rank just above the base card until each pile contains 13 cards.

  • Build the bottom foundations up in suit (for example, a 5Heart Suit can be played on a 4Heart Suit) from the base card to the rank just below the base card until each pile contains 13 cards.

Tableau (22 piles in 2 rows of 11 cards each)

  • Place cards from the stock on any of these piles in any suit and in any rank, as advantageous.

  • Each pile can contain up to 2 cards.

  • Once placed, a card cannot be moved.

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

  • Spaces are automatically filled from the stock.

Cells (or Reserve; 4 cells)

  • These are the "cells". These cells are storage (holding) locations for cards being played to the foundations and the tableau.

  • Cards in these cells can be moved to the foundations and the tableau.

  • Cells can only hold one card at a time.

Stock

  • There is no redeal.
