Solitaire Rules

At the beginning of the game, the eight Queens are removed from the deck and placed on the left-hand side.

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

  • On the Kings, build up in suit from King to Jack (for example, an Ace can be played only on a King).
    Ranking of cards is continuous: build Aces after Kings when necessary.

  • When cards from the Queen reserves become available, they are to be shifted, in reverse order, to the appropriate King foundations (except the Queens themselves, which remain in their places).

  • If the game succeeds, the eight Queens will appear on the one side, and the eight sequences, each headed by a Jack (Knave), on the other.

Reserve (8 piles)

  • On the Queens, build down regardless of suit (for example, a Jack can be played on a Queen).


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

  • As the Kings appear, place them on the right-hand side.

  • There is no redeal.

Waste (1 pile)

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