Solitaire Rules

Tableau (28 cards in 4 rows of 7)

  • Build all the cards on the tableau regardless of suit, doubling the value of the previous placed card.

  • If the double of a card exceeds 13, the excess of the double over 13 denotes the card required. Example. If the tableau card is a 6, you must play a 12 (Queen) on it. The double of 12 (Queen) is 24. This is 11 more than 13 and the next required card must be an 11 (Jack).

  • The game is won if the four tableau rows are completed before the stock is exhausted.

Reserve (2 piles)

  • These cells are storage (holding) locations for cards being played to the tableau.

  • Cells can hold only one card at a time.

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


  • 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 tableau.


  • The game starts at –94 points.
