Solitaire Rules

Foundations (One pile in the center)

  • Build up regardless of suit (for example, a 2 can be played on an Ace) until the pile contains all fifty-two cards.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build Ace after King when necessary.

Tableau (Twelve piles, initially with one card each)

  • Build in alternating colors, regardless of rank.

  • A card can only be played to the card next to it in a clockwise direction.

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.

  • The top card of each pile can be played to the tableau or to the foundation.

  • Spaces are automatically filled from the waste. After the waste is exhausted, spaces can't be filled.


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

  • There is no redeal.

Waste (One pile)

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