Solitaire Rules

Foundation (One pile)

  • Discard here every "hit" card (see below).


  • Deal cards one by one to the waste pile, counting by twos at the same time. Call "Ace" for the first card, "Three" for the second, "Five" for the third, and so on. After the "King" (the seventh card), the cycle begins again and the next card corresponds to the "Two", then the "Four", "Six", "Eight" and so on through the deck. In an entire deck of cards there are four cycles as follows: Ace, 3, 5, 7, 9, Jack, King, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, Queen.

  • When the rank of a card dealt corresponds to the value called (for example, suppose you count "Ace, Three, Five, Seven, Nine" and as you say "Nine", you deal a 9) it is a "hit" and you get to discard the card to the foundation.

  • When all the cards have been dealt, start another deal counting from where you just left off. For example, if the last card was counted as a 10, count the top card dealt right after it as a Queen.

  • Unlimited redeals are permitted until the game is blocked or won (the game is considered lost if you go through the entire deck twice without a "hit").

Waste (One pile)

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