How to Play Classic Solitaire

General Instructions

  • Cards are dealt with 7 columns on the playing field with one to seven cards in each column and the top card showing.
  • When cards of opposite color are numerically adjacent the lower number card can be stacked on the higher number card on the playing field.
  • When you remove a pile from a column the next card is flipped over.
  • If a space is open in the 7 columns you can place a king on the open spot.
  • Aces are placed at the top of the playing field and cards from the playing field can then be stacked on top of the aces.
  • When no more plays can be made on the field you can click on the card stack to reveal the next card.
  • When you reach the end of the card stack you can click where it was originally located to go through it again.
  • When all cards are stacked on the aces the game is over and you have won. If you can no longer make any moves then the game is over and you have lost.
  • If all cards are showing on the playing field then the game will automatically move them to their respective stacks.

Starting a New Game

If the game is over and you won or lost, or you would like to restart a new game for any reason, click on the hamburger menu in the upper left corner of the screen and then click the "new game" button.

Game Features

  • This game has an undo feature at the top of the screen in the center.
  • Player score is shown in the upper right corner. Stacking cards on top of each other on the playing field is worth 5 points, while adding a card to a stack at the top of the screen is worth 10 points.
  • The game has a menu in the upper left corner which reveals a number of features:
    • Switch between draw three or draw one games.
      • By default the game starts off as a draw 3 game, where each time you flip cards from the card stack you access every third card.
      • Draw 1 reveals each individual card.
      • Draw 1 is an easier version of the game since you can play any card in the stack, whereas draw 3 requires you to land on a card or play the card above it in order to access a card from the stack.
    • Sound can be turned on or off
