Solitaire Rules

  • At the beginning of the game, an Ace, 2, 3 and 4 will be put in a row. The function of this row is only to remind you of the arithmetic intervals by which the foundations are to be built up.

  • A 2, 4, 6 and 8 will be put in a second row to start the foundations.

Foundations (4 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • First

  • Second foundation (4): build up regardless of suit, from 4 to King by twos: (4), 6, 8, 10, Q, A, 3, 5, 7, 9, J and K. 

  • Third foundation (6): build up regardless of suit, from 6 to King by threes: (6), 9, Q, 2, 5, 8, J, A, 4, 7, 10 and K.

  • Fourth foundation (8): build up regardless of suit, from 8 to King by fours: (8), Q, 3, 7, J, 2, 6, 10, A, 5, 9 and K.

  • Note: A card may be played to a foundation when its face value corresponds to the sum of the rank in any perpendicular column (when the sum exceeds thirteen, subtract thirteen. When the sum equals thirteen exactly, a King is to be dealt, and that foundation pile is completed), or to the label above the foundation.


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

  • Two redeals are permitted (three deals in all).

Waste (One pile)

  • The top card is available for play on foundations.
