Solitaire Rules

Tableau (Twenty-eight piles in four rows of seven cards each)

  • Discard any face down card and the card (or the pile) to its right if the face down card is between a pair of cards (or piles), one of which is one rank lower or one rank higher than the other (for example: any Queen and any King, any Three and any Two, etc.). To discard, click on the two cards.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: Aces and Kings can be coupled.

  • Gaps are closed by shifting the row to the left.

  • When a row is reduced to three cards (or piles), both the right and left–hand piles are discarded, together with their face down card, by clicking on the two cards.

  • The game is won when the tableau is clear, whether you have dealt out all the cards or not.


  • After all possible plays have been made, click the stock to deal a card on each face up card.

  • There is no redeal.
