Solitaire Rules

Foundations (Eight piles starting with four Aces and four Kings)

  • "Ace" foundations: Build up in alternating colors from Ace to King. For example, a 2 can be played on an Ace .

  • "King" foundations: Build down in alternating colors from King to Ace. For example, a Queen can be played on a King .

  • Reversal. When the top cards of two foundations of the same suit are in sequence, one or more cards from one pile may be transferred to the other, except for the Ace or King at the bottom.

Tableau (Eight columns starting with one card each)

  • Play available cards to the foundations. A card is available when its lower edge is free, that is, when a gap is just below it.

  • A gap is created just below a card moved to a foundation and, since spaces are not filled, gaps will appear in the columns.

  • No building on the tableau.


  • Click once on the stock to deal a new row of eight cards to the tableau. Cards are overlapped in columns and gaps are kept below available cards.

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