Solitaire Rules


  • The foundations are not built directly.

  • The 10 piles are tableau and foundations at the same time and all building is on the tableau.

  • When a playable sequence (an entire suite of 13 cards) becomes exposed it is automatically moved to a foundation.

  • The game is won if all 8 sequences are discarded (when you discard the whole deck in 8 sequences and nothing is on the tableau).

Tableau (10 columns)

  • Build down regardless of suit (for example, a 5Spades Suit can be played on a 6Spades SuitHeart SuitClubs SuitDiamonds Suit).

  • The top card of each pile is available for play on another tableau pile.

  • Cards of the same suit and in descending sequence may be moved as a unit to another pile (groups of cards not of the same suit cannot be moved).

  • Nothing can be placed on an Ace (a King cannot move, except to a blank space).

  • Spaces may be filled with any available card or packed sequence.


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

  • There is no redeal.
