Solitaire Rules

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

  • Build 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.

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

Middle step (13 cards)

  • Cards are available for play to the foundations.

  • Spaces must be filled from the Lower step.

  • No building in the Middle step.

  • When a card "steps up" fro the middle row to the foundation, the space is called the "open door", and it is the only way by which the lowest row can be reach the foundations.

  • The "open door" can only be kept open for the turn of 3 cards from the stock, then it must be filled.

Lower step (9 cards)

  • Build down in alternating colors (for example, a 10Spades Suit can be played on a JackHeart Suit).

  • Spaces can be filled from the waste.

Stock

  • Turn up one card at a time from the stock to the waste by clicking. 

  • There is no redeal.

Waste (1 pile)

  • The top card is available for play to the foundations or to the lowest step.
