Solitaire Rules

Tableau (8 columns of 1 card each)

  • This game has two parts: the first part begins with the first move until there are no cards left in the stock.

First part of the game

  • Build down in alternating colors (for example, a 10can be played on a Jack).

  • Any Ace (8 in total, two of each suit) and a Two of each suit (4 Twos in total) can be moved to the reserve.

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to another tableau column or to the foundations.

  • A packed sequence, or any portion of it, may be moved to another tableau column.

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

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

Second part of the game

  • When the stock is exhausted, the second part of the game begins.

  • You may now build on both ends of the columns (the tops in ascending, and the bottoms in descending sequences).

  • To build card on the top of a column, simply click on the column while pressing the Ctrl key. The column order will be reversed and a label above the column will remind you of the "ascending" method of building. To return to the original method ("descending"), click again on the column while pressing the Ctrl key.

Reserve (Two columns: one for the Aces and one for the Twos)

  • The top cards of each pile are available for play to the tableau.


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

  • There is no redeal.
