Solitaire Rules

  • The base card (the first card dealt) for this game will vary.

Foundations (4 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • You may build the foundation piles either in an ascending or descending sequence - whichever offers the greatest advantage. You cannot reverse the order once you've started to build a foundation.

  • Build in suit from the base card to the rank just below or just above the base card until each pile contains 13 cards.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build Ace after King when necessary.

Left Tableau (25 cards in 5 rows of 5) and Right Tableau (25 cards in 5 rows of 5)

  • Only the cards in the extreme left-hand and extreme right-hand position are available for play.

  • Available cards may be played to the foundations, to another available card (either in an ascending or descending sequence), to spaces which occur when all the cards in a horizontal row have been played (either in the right or left tableau), or to the cells.

Left Reserve (4 cards) and Right Reserve (4 cards)

  • Only the cards in the extreme left-hand and extreme right-hand position are available for play.

  • Available cards may be played to the foundations, to another available card (either in an ascending or descending sequence), to spaces which occur when all the cards in a horizontal row have been played (either in the right or left tableau), or to the cells.

  • Spaces are not filled.

Cells (2 cells)

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

  • Any two available cards may, at any time, be placed here.

  • Cards in these cells may be moved to the foundations and the tableau only when all the cards in the reserve of the same side as itself have been played.

  • Cells can hold only one card at a time.
