Solitaire Rules

Foundation (Eight piles)

  • "Ace" foundations: Build up in suit from Ace to King, using cards of the top row only. For example, a 2 can only be played on an Ace.

  • "King" foundations: Build down in suit from King to Ace, using cards of the bottom row only. For example, a Queen can only be played on a King.

  • Autoplay is available.

Tableau (Top row of ten cards – Middle row: six piles of eight cards each and four piles of nine cards. – Bottom row of ten cards.)

  • Only the cards in the top and bottom rows are available for play to the foundations or to another tableau pile.

  • In the top and bottom rows, build up or down in alternating colors. For example, a 10 can be played either on a 9 or on a Jack. Ranking of cards is continuous: build King after Ace and Ace after King when necessary.

  • Spaces in the top and bottom rows are automatically filled with the top card of the middle pile located directly above or below it.

  • When any middle pile is empty and a space occurs above or below it, the space is filled with the top card of the pile immediately to the left.

  • No building in the middle row.
