How To Play Solitaire
Solitaire is a card game where the goal is to arrange all cards into the four empty foundation piles, organized by suit color and numerical order, starting from Ace and progressing to King. You can achieve this by moving face up cards from the stock pile or the tableau.
Terms You Should Know To Play
Tableau: This area consists of seven columns, with the first column containing one card and each subsequent column containing one additional card. Each card starts face down except the last card in each column which is face up.
Stock pile: This is where you can draw the remaining cards, which can then be played in the game.
Waste pile: If cards from the stock pile are not used, they are placed into a waste pile. Once all cards are turned over, the remaining cards in the waste pile that haven't been moved to either the tableau or foundation can be redrawn from the stock pile in the same order.
Foundation: These are four piles sorted by suit, where you aim to move playable cards in order from Ace to King. Successfully placing all 52 cards in the foundation results in a win!
With our online solitaire game, the set up is automatically done for you.
Lets Walk Through The Rules And A Game
1. Face up cards in the tableau or stock pile can be moved on top of another face up card in the tableau of an opposite color that is one rank higher, forming a sequence of cards. In the example below, the 2 of Spades can be moved on top of the 3 of Hearts.
2. Groups or stacks of sequenced cards in the tableau can also be moved together on top of a card of the opposite color and higher rank. In the examples below, the 9 of Hearts and 8 of Spades can be placed on top of the 10 of Spades.
3. If a tableau column has only face-down cards remaining, the last card is flipped over and can be played.
4. Aces must be the first cards placed on the foundation. Once a foundation pile is started, only cards of that suit can be placed in that specific pile.
5. As cards are surfaced from the stock pile or tableau, and there are no other cards on top of them, they may be moved to a foundation pile if they can be placed in the right order. In the example below, the 2 of Clubs can be placed on top of the Ace of Clubs in the foundation.
6. When a tableau column is empty, you may move a King, and only a King, to that column.
7. Win by moving all 52 cards to the foundation piles in the right order.
