Solitaire Rules

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

  • Build down in suit from Jack to Ace (for example, a 10 can be played on a Jack).

  • Kings and Queens serve no function and are placed above or below of the Jack of their suit, but they must not be placed until their own particular Jack has been placed.

Tableau (9 columns)

  • Build up in suit (for example, a 10 can only be played on a 9).

  • The top card of each column is available for play to another tableau column or to the foundations.

  • A packed sequence, or any portion of it, may be moved to another tableau column.

  • Spaces are automatically filled from the stock.


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

  • There is no redeal.
