The goal is to move all cards to the four foundations on the upper
Turning and Moving
Click the stock (on the upper left) to turn over cards onto the
Drag cards to move them between the waste pile, the seven tableau
columns, and the four foundations. You can also
double-click cards instead of dragging them to a foundation.
You may move single cards or piles of cards within the tableau. You may
only move cards off the waste pile, but you may onto and off the
Any time you expose a face-down card in a tableau column, that card is
automatically turned face-up for you.
Cards on the foundations need to be stacked by the same suit from Ace to
Cards on the tableau need to be stacked by alternating color from high
rank (King) to low rank (Ace). Empty spots on the tableau can be filled
with a King of any suit.
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. This isn't allowed in all Sotaire versions, but we allow it here :)
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 color. For example, you cod 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 cck 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 either drag the cards onto the Foundation, or just double click it and then it will
got there by itself. 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.
