Solitaire Rules

Foundations (Eight piles)

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

  • "King" foundations: Build down in suit from King to Ace. For example, a Queen can only be played on a King.

  • 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 (Twenty cards in four rows of five cards each: the "Persian Carpet")

  • These cards are always available for play to the foundations.

  • Each pile may contain only one card. No building on the tableau.

  • Spaces are automatically filled from the stock or the waste. This process is called "repairing the holes in the carpet".

Stock

  • Turn up one card at a time from the stock to the waste by clicking.

  • There is no redeal.

Tableau (One pile)

  • The top card is always available for play to the foundations.
