Solitaire Rules

Tableau (7 columns)

  • Build the cards regardless of suit or rank.

  • The top card of each column is available for play to another tableau column.

  • Any face-up card, no matter how deep it is in a column, may be moved to make a build. All the covering cards are moved with it as a unit.

  • A card may be moved to another tableau column if the sum of the rank of the two cards is equal to 7 or a multiple of 7 (14 or 21). For example, you can place an Ace on a 6, a 3 on a Jack or a 9 on a Queen.

  • If a sequence of cards is moved, the sum is reached with the top card on the destination tableau column and the bottom card of the sequence.

  • Spaces may be filled only with another card of the same tableau rank.

  • The game is won if all the cards of the stock are placed on the tableau before the stock is exhausted.


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

  • There is no redeal.

Waste (1 pile)

  • The top card is available for play to the tableau.
