Solitaire Rules

  • All the 52 cards are dealt face up on the tableau at the beginning of the game.

  • The Q, which represents Isolde, is dealt in the first position and the K, which represents Tristan, is dealt in the last position.

  • Discard pairs of cards of the same suit or rank that are adjacent horizontally, vertically or diagonally (any two cards which touch top to bottom, side to side, or diagonally at the corners).

  • When a pair is discarded, remaining cards are moved from right to left and up from the lower rows to consolidate the tableau.

  • The game is won if the Queen and her King are side by side, other cards having been discarded.

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