Solitaire Rules

Foundations (8 piles in the form of two pyramids: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build the Ace foundations up in suit from Ace to King (for example, a 2 can be played on an Ace).

  • Build the King foundations down in suit from King to Ace (for example, a Queen can be played on a King).

Tableau (9 piles in the form of a pyramid)

  • Only cards in the base of the pyramid can be moved to the foundations.

  • The cards in the base of the pyramid only may be built up or down
    in suit.

  • If there is a space in the base of the pyramid, check the exposed card above it to see if it's available for play to the foundations. If it is, play the card. If there was a card underneath that is now exposed and can be played to the foundations, do so. When no other plays are possible, fill the empty space(s) with a card(s) from the waste pile(s).


  • Click once on the stock to deal a new row of cards to the waste.

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

  • When no cards from the base of the pyramid can be moved, click once on the stock.

  • First Redeal: When all the cards have been dealt from the stock and no more moves are possible, click once on redeal. This will move all the cards from the waste piles back into the stock. Click once on the stock to deal a row of cards to only 2 waste piles.

  • Second Redeal: Follow the instructions for the First Redeal. Click once on the stock to deal a card to only 1 waste pile.

Waste (3 piles)

  • The top cards are available for play on the foundations or the base of the pyramid.
