Solitaire Rules

  • The base card for this game will vary. One card from the stock is dealt to the first foundation. This card determines the starting rank of the other three foundations.

Foundations (4 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build in suit regardless of rank.

  • On the first foundation, you may play any card from the same suit as the first card dealt.

  • On the lower foundations, the first card played must be of the same rank as the first card in the first foundation.

  • After that, on the lower foundations, only play cards whose rank already exists in the pile immediately above it.

Reserve (3 piles)

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to the foundations.


  • Click once on the stock to deal one card at a time to each reserve pile.

  • Once the whole stock has been dealt and there are no more possible moves, click the redeal button to collect the remaining cards on the reserve and deal them again.

  • One redeal is permitted (two deals in all).
