Solitaire Rules

  • One Queen is removed from the deck and placed in the first tableau pile.

Foundations (16 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build the Six foundations up regardless of suit from Six to Jack (for example, an 8 can be played on a 7).

  • Build the Five foundations down regardless of suit from Five to Ace, then King (for example, a 4can be played on a 5).

  • The object is to finish with a row of Jacks, a row of Kings and a row of Queens.

Tableau (Eight columns)

Place cards on top of the first Queen until:

  • A Five appears. This is placed on a foundation in the row above the Queens.

  • A Six appears. This is placed on a foundation in the row above the Fives.

  • Another Queen appears. She is placed to the right of the first Queen. Cards are then dealt and placed on the second Queen until a third Queen appears. Continue in the same way until the last Queen is dealt and the whole deck is laid out in 8 piles of varying lengths.

  • An uncovered Queen is the equivalent of a temporary space and any available card may be placed on it.

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to the foundations or to an uncovered Queen.

  • No building on the tableau.


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

  • There is no redeal.
