Solitaire Rules

Set Up:

  • At the start of the game, the player will distribute all 52 cards, one by one, to the 8 tableau columns. The cards should be distributed to maximize a game win.

  • The labels above each tableau column indicate how many cards must be added or remain to be added to each column. The first four columns must be formed with 7 cards each, the last four columns with 6 cards each.

Foundations (4 piles; top right side of the screen: complete these piles to win the game)

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

Tableau (8 columns, below foundations and cells)

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

  • Only the top card of each pile is available for play to the foundations, or can also be moved to any cells.

  • Move groups of cards if they are in sequence and if there are enough free cells that the cards could be moved individually.

  • Spaces may be filled only with a King or a King-sequence.

Cells (or Reserve: 4 cells)

  • These are the "cells". These cells are storage locations for cards being played to the and the tableau.

  • Cards in these cells can be moved to the foundations and the tableau.

  • Only one card at a time is allowed in each cell.
