Solitaire Rules

Foundations (One pile)

  • All discarded cards are played to this pile.

Tableau (Eight columns)

  • Discard the lower–ranking card(s) of two or more cards of the same suit in the eight exposed cards across the columns.

  • Ace counts higher than King, values running A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Aces are not discarded.

  • Keep discarding until the top cards are all of different suits, then deal the next eight cards.

  • No building on the tableau.

  • At the end of the game, when the stock is exhausted, spaces may be filled only with Aces.

  • The game is won if only the eight Aces remain in the tableau, one Ace in each column, and the remaining ninety-six lower–ranking cards having been discarded.


  • Click once on the stock to deal a new row of cards to the tableau.

  • There is no redeal.


  • Aces Up starts at −64 points because the eight Aces are not discarded from the layout at the end of the game: (8 cards x 5 points) = 40 points; −104 + 40 = −64 points

  • The final score is 416, like any other two–deck games.
