Solitaire

Shuffle through the cards thoroughly. Twenty-eight cards are dealt from the deck into seven tableau piles with the number of cards per pile increasing from one to seven from left to right. The top card of each tableau is face up, the rest are face down.

The remaining cards are placed in the right hand side and become your draw pile.

The object of the game is to build up all cards on foundations from Ace to King by following suit. You win when all 52 cards are moved there, 13 to a pile.

Top cards of the tableau piles and the draw pile are available for play.Move cards from one tableau to another by arranging them in descending order and with alternating colours. For example, move a black 5 onto a red 6 or a red Queen onto a black King.When you remove the last face up card from a tableau pile flip over the top face down card making it the new face up card.

Sort through the draw stack when there are no longer cards to play on the tableaus.Move cards to the foundations as soon as possible.The game is won when all cards are moved into the 4 foundations.

GAME DESCRIPTION

Solitaire refers to a variety of single player card games using a 6 deck of 52 cards. It is a simple game involving strategy, skill, and bit of luck.Solitaire is a fun card game to enjoy at all ages. Create stacks of cards on the solitaire board by stacking cards downward alternating colour. Click through the stock cards to add extra cards to the solitaire game. The ultimate goal of Solitaire is to add all the cards into their foundations in the top right based on suit from Ace to King.

There are four different types of piles in Solitaire. They are:

  • The Stock: The pile of facedown cards.
  • The Waste: The faceup pile next to the Stock.
  • The Foundations: The four piles in the upper right corner.
  • The Tableau: The seven piles that make up the main table.

The Tableau piles are numbered from 1 to 7, pile 1 has 1 card, pile 2 has 2 cards and so on. The top card on each Tableau pile is turned face up, the cards below are turned face down. The cards that are left after setting up the Tableau are placed in the Stock, face down. The Waste and the Foundations start off empty.

To win Solitaire, you must get all the cards onto the Foundation piles. The Foundations are ordered by suit and rank, each Foundation has one suit and you must put the cards onto them in the order Ace 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Jack Queen King. To get there, you can use the moves described below.

Flip cards from the Stock onto the Waste. You can flip either 1 or 3 cards from the Stock onto the Waste. The number can be configured in Options.

Move a card from the Waste onto the Foundations. If the top card of the Waste can go onto one of the Foundations then you can drag it there.

Move a card from the Waste onto the Tableau. You can move the top card of the Waste onto one of the Tableau piles.

Move a card from a Foundation back onto the Tableau. You can move the top card of a Foundation back onto the Tableau.

Move one or more cards from one Tableau pile to another. You can move a face up card on the Tableau onto another Tableau pile, if that pile's top card is one higher than the moved card and in a different colour. For example, you could move a red 6 onto a black 7. Or, if you have red 6, black 5, red 4 face up on one tableau, you can move all of them at the same time onto a Tableau with a black 7. If you have an empty Tableau pile then you can only place a king there.

You can flip a face down Tableau card. If you have moved a face up card from a Tableau pile so now the top card is face down, then you can click the face down card and it will be flipped and shown face up.

You can move a Tableau card onto the Foundations. You can do this manually if you need to clear some space on the Tableau. You can drag the cards onto the Foundation .When all cards on the Tableau are turned up, and all cards from the stock are finished then the game will automatically move all the Tableau cards onto the Foundations, since at that point you are guaranteed to win the game.

You can Undo as many times as you like. The game offers unlimited undoes. Each Undo counts as a new move though, so if you're trying to win the game in as few moves as possible you should be careful about how many undoes you use.
