Solitaire Rules

Set-Up: The base card for this game will vary. One card from the stock is dealt to the first foundation. This card determines the starting rank of the other three foundations.

Foundations (Four piles)

  • Build in suit, regardless of rank.

  • On the first foundation pile, any card of the same suit as the first card dealt may be played.

  • On the lower foundations piles, the first card played must be of the same rank as the first card in the first foundation.

  • Thereafter, you can only play cards to the lower foundations when that rank already exists in the pile immediately above it.

Reserve (Four fans of four cards each. The top card of each fan is face up)

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

  • Spaces can't be filled.


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

  • One redeal is permitted (two deals in all).

Waste (One pile)

  • The top card is always available for play to the foundations.
