Solitaire Rules

At the start of the game, an Ace and a King of each suit are dealt to become the foundations.

Foundations (8 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build the Ace foundations up in suit from Ace to King (for example, a 2Heart Suit can be played only on an AceHeart Suit).

  • Build the King foundations down in suit from King to Ace (for example, a QueenClubs Suit can be played only on a KingClubs Suit).

  • 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 (96 cards in 16 columns of 6 cards each)

  • Build up or down in suit (for example, a 10Diamonds Suit can be played either on a 9Diamonds Suit or on a JackDiamonds Suit).

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build King after Ace when necessary.

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

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.

  • Spaces can't be filled.


  • After all possible plays have been made, click the Redeal button.

  • A redeal will move the bottom card of every tableau pile to the top (all other cards remain in the same order).

  • Three redeals are permitted (four deals in all).
