Solitaire Rules

  • An Ace and a King of each suit are removed from the stock to become the foundations.

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

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

  • Build the King foundations down in suit from King to Ace (for example, a Queen can be played on a King).

Tableau (12 columns in 2 rows of 6 cards each)

  • Deal the entire deck, one card at a time consecutively to each pile, without missing a pile.

During the deal:

  • Play any suitable card dealt from the stock to the foundations. Then fill its place on the tableau with the next card dealt.

  • No cards from the tableau can be moved.

After the whole stock is dealt:

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

  • Build up or down in suit (for example, a 10 can be played either on a 9 or a Jack).

  • You may change direction on the same pile.

  • Ranking of cards is not continuous: an Ace may be built only on a 2, a King only on a Queen.

  • Only one card at a time can be moved in the tableau.

  • Spaces may be filled with any available card.


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