Solitaire Rules

  • All the Aces and Twos are removed from the stock and placed in two rows, becoming the foundations.

Foundations (Sixteen piles, starting with eight Aces and eight Twos)

  • "Ace" foundations: Build the "Ace" foundations up in suit by twos (odd numbers) from A, 3, 5, 7, 9, J to K (for example, a 3 can be played on an Ace).

  • "Two" foundations: Build the "Two" foundations up in suit by twos (even numbers) from 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 to Q (for example, a 4 can be played on a 2).

  • Autoplay is available.

Tableau (Eight columns, initially with one card each)

  • Build down in suit by twos (for example, a 10 can be played on a Queen).

  • The top card of each column 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.

  • Spaces are automatically filled from the stock. After the stock is exhausted, spaces can be filled only with a King, a Queen, a King–sequence or a Queen–sequence.


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

  • There is no redeal.
