Forty Thieves Solitaire is a classic solitaire game inspired by the well-known folk tale. Can you get all the cards onto the foundations in this stimulating card game? Our app makes other card games look easy in comparison, even the notorious Spider Solitaire. We ask that only daring players download our game to take on this hard challenge!

Every effort has been made to create a beautiful, sumptuous theme and a perfect user experience, complete with delightful sound effects. Forty Thieves Solitaire is a unique and rare game with similarities to the popular Freecell. Your goal is to move all the cards to the 8 foundation piles from Ace to King. It uses 2 decks so that the rules state that only one card may be moved at a time. In the play area cards can only be moved to empty columns or in descending order by suit. Naturally the game has a well-made tutorial to teach you anything you might need to know.

* Simple rules, quick tutorial (which you won't even need if you like Freecell!)
* Multiple rounds and multiple ways to score with bonuses.
* Classic, theme inspired by the folk tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.
* Beautifully animated, accompanied by a tailor-made soundscape.
* Extensive tutorial and instructions.
* Two levels of difficulty, both of them require you to be patient!

If you find other games too easy, then you’ll love Forty Thieves Solitaire Gold!

I don’t want the easy version but I can’t turn it off.

Not sure why I cannot change to the hard version. I have the option to turn off sound but not change versions

Hi there, to change the game to hard difficulty where you do not start with any aces you must go to the Options menu on the main menu and uncheck the box that says 'Easy Mode'. After this is done, you will need to start a new game for the change to take effect. Once a new game is started, the aces should now be distributed into the draw pile and play area. If this fails to resolve the issue, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us directly at

A Total Ripoff

In every version of Forty Thieves, I’ve been able to refresh the deck once, which means going through the deck twice during each game. So when I tried to refresh, it brought up the window for me to pay $.99 to do this. I assumed, incorrectly, that this was the cost to have the regular version. However, the very next round, the window popped up asking for the $.99 payment.

Do you honestly expect players to pay that for each round? It should have been made clear before paying. To make things right, I expect a refund.

Hi there, we're sorry to hear that you're unhappy with the deck restock in-app purchase. We will make sure to pass your concerns along to our design team for consideration. Apple handles all transactions that occur between players and our game, so you will have to get in touch with them for a refund. If you need instructions on how to do so, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at

I love the game, but it freezes up. It is very addictive, but very disappointing when it locks up. The only way I have found to unlock it is to turn off my phone and power it back up.
