Solitaire Rules


  • The foundations are not built directly.

  • The 10 piles are tableau and foundations at the same time and all building is on the tableau.

  • When a playable sequence (an entire suite of 13 cards) becomes exposed it is automatically moved to a foundation.

  • The game is won if all 8 sequences are discarded (when you discard the whole deck in 8 sequences and nothing is on the tableau).

The Joker

  • Whenever the Joker becomes available, it may be played as a "wild" card.

  • The Joker can be moved as a single card to any tableau pile. Cards in correct sequence are then built on the Joker.

  • The Joker, no matter how deep it is in a column, can also be moved along with a suit sequence under or above it.

Tableau (Ten columns with six cards in the first four columns and five cards in the remaining ones. The top card of each column is face up.)

  • Build down regardless of suit (for example, a 5 can be played on a 6).

  • The top card of each pile is available for play on another tableau pile.

  • Cards of the same suit and in descending sequence may be moved as a unit to another pile (groups of cards not of the same suit cannot be moved).

  • Nothing can be placed on an Ace (a King cannot move, except to a blank space).

  • Spaces may be filled with any available card or packed sequence.

  Stock (Fifty cards)

  • Click once on the stock to deal a new row of cards to the tableau.

  • There is no redeal.
