Solitaire Rules

Tableau (195 cards in 13 columns)

  • Build down in suit (for example, a 10 can only be played on a Jack).

  • When an entire suite of 13 cards becomes exposed, it is automatically removed from the tableau.

  • 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.

  • Spaces may be filled only with a King, a King–sequence or a King with any overlapping cards.

  • A King cannot move, except to an empty space.

  • Nothing can be placed on an Ace.

  • The game is won if the four entire decks in all sixteen suites are discarded and nothing is left on the tableau.

Reserve (13 cards)

  • After all possible moves are made, the thirteen cards in this pile are dealt onto the thirteen columns of the tableau to create more possibilities.

  • There is no redeal.
