Solitaire Rules

Foundations (8 piles: 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).

  • Reversal. When the top cards of two foundations of the same suit are in sequence, one or more cards from one pile may be transferred to the other, including the Ace or King at the bottom.

Reserve (2 columns of 4 cards each, called the "kibitzers")

  • Each card is available for play to the foundations.

  • Spaces may be filled with any available card from the tableau (this can be done whenever you wish).

  • Each pile can only hold one card at a time.

Tableau (6 columns of 4 cards each, called the "dormitzers")

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to the foundations.

  • No building in the tableau.

  • Spaces are automatically filled with four cards from the stock.


  • When all possible moves have been played, click once on the stock to deal four cards to each of the six piles on the tableau.

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