Solitaire Rules

Set-Up: A King is removed from the deck and placed as the first foundation.

Foundation (Eight piles)

  • After the King, foundations must be placed in strict sequence from Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7 to 6, as they become available. For example, the Jack foundation cannot be placed until the Queen foundation is in place.

  • These eight cards from K to 6 are called "origins". All "origins" must be placed, in order, before foundation building can start.

  • Build down, regardless of suit until each pile contains thirteen cards. The end product is a row of eight piles of thirteen cards, in order from A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8 and 7.

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

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 (One pile)

  • The top card is always available for play to the foundations.

This is a very old French solitaire. For more information, please click the About tab.
