Solitaire Rules

Foundations (One pile)

  • The base card is the first card dealt from the stock.

  • The foundation is built by rank regardless of suit. For example: if the base card is the 7, you have to build the other three 7’s in any order: 7, 7, and 7. Then the four 8’s, the four 9’s and so on.

Tableau (4 columns)

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

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.


  • 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 or to the tableau.
