Solitaire Rules

  • At the start of the game an Ace and a King of each suit are placed in two columns to become the foundations.

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

  • Build the Ace foundations up in suit from Ace to King (for example, a 2Heart Suit can be played on an AceHeart Suit).

  • Build the King foundations down in suit from King to Ace (for example, a QueenClubs Suit can be played on a KingClubs Suit).

  • Reversal. When the top cards of two foundations of the same suit are in sequence, one or more cards of one pile may be reversed, except for the base card.

Reserve (9 cards in 3 rows of 3)

  • These cards are available for play on the foundations.

  • Each pile can contain only one card.

  • Spaces are filled automatically from the waste, or, if empty, from the stock.

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 available for play on the foundations.
