Solitaire Rules

Set Up:

Foundations (Twelve piles)

  • Study the tableau to determine the starting card (base card) for each of the eight foundations. The starting cards may be different from foundation to foundation. There must be three starting cards per suit.

  • Build the starting cards up in suit, until each pile contains thirteen cards. For example, a 2 can be played on an Ace.

  • Above each foundation is an indicator. It shows the rank and the suit you need to build to, in order to complete that foundation.

  • Autoplay is available.


(Ninety-six cards arranged in twelve piles of eight cards each, between the foundations and tableau)

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

  • Spaces can't be filled.

Tableau (Twelve columns of five cards each)

  • Build down in alternating colors. For example, a 10 can be played on a Jack.

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

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous. Build Aces after Kings when necessary.

  • Spaces may be filled with any available card from the tableau or the reserve.
