Solitaire Rules

  • All Jacks, Queens and Kings are removed from the stock.

  • The rest of the stock is dealt in four rows of 10 cards each. Then the four Aces are removed, creating four gaps in the layout.

Tableau (4 rows of 9 cards each)

  • A gap (four in all) must be filled with the card that is the next highest in rank and of the same suit as the card to the left of the gap. (For example: if a gap opens up to the right of the 4, it must be filled with the 5; the gap and the 5 will exchange places).

  • A gap in the first space of a row may be filled with any Two. The player decides which row he will allocate to each suit.

  • Because a Ten is the highest-ranking card, a gap after a Ten cannot be filled and action is blocked.


  • After all possible plays have been made (when the Tens block any action), click the redeal button.

  • Redeal is performed as follows:

    • Any Two and the suit sequences starting with them are left in place.

    • All other cards that are out of sequence are removed, shuffled and then dealt to complete the rows.

    • A gap is left to the immediate right of the cards that are in suit sequence in each row (if the only card in place is a Two, a gap is left to the right of it).

    • If there is no Two in a row, a gap is left in the first place of the row, so that a Two can be moved there.

  • One redeal is permitted (two deals in all).
