Solitaire Rules

  • A King is removed from the deck and placed at the left as the first foundation.

Foundations (8 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build down regardless of suit until each pile contains thirteen cards. The end product is a row of 8 piles of 13 cards, surmounted respectively by A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8 and 7.

  • Foundations after the King must be moved into place strictly in order from Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, to 6. For example, the Jack foundation cannot be placed until the Queen foundation is in place.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build Aces before Twos and after Kings.


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

  • Two redeals are permitted (three deals in all).

Waste (1 pile)

  • The top card is available for play on the foundations.
