Solitaire Rules

Foundations (4 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • The foundations are: an Ace dealt at the beginning and three Kings of the remaining three suits placed during the deal.

  • Ace foundation: Build up in suit from Ace to King. For example, a 2 can only be played on an Ace.

  • King foundations: Build down, regardless of suit (except for the suit of the Ace foundation) from King to Ace. For example, a Queen can be played on a King .

Tableau (Four piles, initially with one card each)

  • On the first column, build down regardless of suit (for example, a 3 can be played on an 4). It is not possible to play cards from this column to the other 3 columns.

  • On the other three piles, build up regardless of suit. For example, a 10 can be played on an 9). The top card of each pile is available for play to another tableau pile or to the foundations.

  • Spaces may be filled with any available card from the waste.


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

  • Three redeals are permitted (four deals in all).

Waste (1 pile)

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