Solitaire Rules

  • The entire stock is dealt in four rows of 13 cards each. Then the four Aces are removed, creating four gaps in the layout.

Tableau (4 rows of 12 cards each)

  • A gap (four in all) must be filled with the card that is:

    • the next highest in rank and of the same suit as the card to the left of the gap. (For example: if a gap opens up to the right of the 10Heart Suit , it must be filled with the JackHeart Suit; the gap and the JackHeart Suit will exchange places).

    • the next lowest in rank and of the same suit as the card to the right of the gap. (For example: if a gap opens up to the left of the 5Spades Suit, it must be filled with the 4Spades Suit; the gap and the 4Spades Suit will exchange places).

  • A gap in the first space of a row may be filled with any Two. The player decides which row he will allocate to each suit.

Stock

  • After all possible plays have been made, click the Redeal button.

  • Redeals are performed as follows:

    • Any Two and the suit sequences starting with them are left in place.

    • All other cards that are out of sequence are removed, shuffled and then dealt to complete the rows.

    • A gap is left to the immediate right of the cards that are in suit sequence in each row (if the only card in place is a Two, a gap is left to the right of it).

    • If there is no Two in a row, a gap is left in the first place of the row, so that a Two can be moved there.

  • Two redeals are permitted (three deals in all).
