Solitaire Rules

  • All Kings and Queens are removed from the stock.

Foundations (8 piles in the first row, or the "Government": complete these piles to win the game)

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

Tableau (4 rows of 8 cards each: the "Constitution")

  • The foundations are built exclusively from the cards in the top row (the "Privy Council").

  • All the cards in the other 3 rows must ascend through each row until they reach the top row before they can be played.

  • You can build down in alternating colors (for example, a 10 can be played on a Jack) any card on a card in the row immediately above it.

  • A space in any row must be filled immediately with any card from the row immediately below it (not necessarily the one directly under the space).

  • A space in bottom row (People row) is automatically filled from the waste or from the stock.


  • Turn up one card at a time from the stock to the waste by clicking.
  • There is no redeal.

Waste (One pile)

  • The top card is available for play to the foundations.
