The different piles

There are four various types of piles in Solitaire are as follows:

  • The Stock: The upper left corner is a pile of upside-down cards.
  • The Waste: The next pile to Stock, the pile of faced-up cards in the upper left corner.
  • The Foundations: The four piles on upper right corner.
  • The Tableau: The main table made by seven piles with different number of cards.

The setup

The Tableau has seven piles in chronology from 1 to 7, First pile has 1 card, second pile has 2 cards and so on. The top card of each pile is faced up, whereas below them the rest of the cards are turned upside-down. Left over cards after settling the Tableau piles are stocked upside-down as Stock. The Waste and Foundation would be empty at the start of the game.

The objective

When you succeed to arrange all the card on the Foundation according to their ranks and suit, you win the Game. Each Foundation has one suit, and you must keep all the cards in their order, that is, Ace 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Jack Queen King. To get this done, below are the moves to help you.

Allowed moves

From the stock pike you can flip, 1 or 3 cards onto the Waste. The number of the cards can be selected from the option.

If the top card of the Waste can be moved to Foundation, you can drag the card or can double-click the same to move.

Move a card from the Waste onto the Tableau. 

You can drag the top card from Waste to the pile of Tableau.

Move a card from a Foundation back onto the Tableau. 

If you want to play the trick by moving the Foundation’s card back to the pile of the Tableau, you can drag the card to the designated place.

Move one or more cards from one Tableau pile to another. 

To make a pile with alternate color with descending order, you can move the faced-up card from one pile to another. Such as you can move red 5 on to the black 6 and the black 4 on the red 5. You can move this pile of 3 cards on the red 7.

The card below faced-up can be revealed after moving the card to a particular place. Once all the cards from the particular pile are moved, then you can only move King on that empty place.

You can flip a face down Tableau card. 

When the faced-up card has been moved from the Tableau pile, you can turn up the card below it by clicking on it. By clicking the upside-down card, it will be flipped and face up.
