This is a popular Solitaire game where players try to organize all four suits in ascending order from 2 up to King across a grid of 4×13 cells. The game deals Aces to the field as spacers then immediately removes them.

  • Select a highlighted card to move it behind another card which is sequentially below it.
  • Create an opening at the left edge of the screen and place a 2 there.
  • Repeatedly move cards until you run out of valid moves.
  • When no valid moves remain the cards which are not in sequential order following a 2 get shuffled into new positions. You get 3 shuffles per game.

How to Play

Use the gaps in the playing field to move cards into sequential order. Build 4 royal flushes which start with the 2 cards in the leftmost column.

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the Play button on the right side of the welcome screen to start the game.
    • Underneath the Play button are buttons for how to play Help, High Scores, and More Games.
    • The lower left corner of the welcome screen has a language select dropdown.
    • The lower right corner of the welcome screen has buttons for game settings, social media sharing, and reading game developer information.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use your mouse left click button to select a card with a glowing border to move to an open gap on the board.
      • For 2 cards you may need to select the card and the space you want to lay it to if there are multiple open spaces.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap the screen with a finger to select a card to move it.
    • Controls & indicators
      • Controls are along the bottom of the screen.
        • The left has buttons for undoing moves or shuffling the cards.
        • The center has indicators showing your remaining play time, current game score, and how many moves you have used thusfar.
        • The right has 4 buttons to pause the game, switch to fullscreen mode, control game sound, and control game music.
  • Game Play
    • Deal
      • All cards are dealt randomly to a grid of 4 rows with 13 columns.
      • The Aces are dealt as spacers, then are immediately removed from the board to create the gaps which enable other moves.
    • Playing
      • Move cards to gaps in the field where the card is same suit and one value higher than the card to its left.
        • The border of cards which have valid moves are highlighted.
        • As you move a card you fill in a gap but create another one, which may enable other plays.
      • You can always move a 2 to the leftmost position on a row if it is open.
        • 2 cards go in the leftmost positions in each row & then you try to build a royal flush in ascending order from left to right.
          • You can use any of the 4 rows for any suit, though when you start a suit you must follow it for it to be valid.
          • Once a card is in its correct position and is in sequence in a row which contains the 2 in the leftmost column that card will not move again unless you manually choose to (though wanting to is rather rare, since putting it out of position means you later have to put it back into position).
        • When you can not make any more moves the cards which are not yet in correct ascending suited order starting with a 2 are reshuffled.
          • You get up to 3 shuffles per game.
    • Levels
      • This is a single level game with a 10-minute time limit.
    • Strategy
      • 2 cards
        • Try to get the 2 cards to the leftmost column as early as you can in the game.
        • When they are in place the game will not shuffle them on shuffles.
        • Any card which is in the correct sequential ascending order behind them in sequence also will not shuffle.
        • Choosing which 2 card to play in which row is one of the most important choices you can make in this game as many moves are rather automated or have limited optionality, but which 2 you choose enables a vastly different sequence of subsequent moves.
      • Kings
        • Kings act sort of like roadblocks in this game as you can’t put a card after them since they are the highest valued card.
        • This means you should try to minimize creating gaps behind the Kings unless you know you will soon be able to move the King to another position.
      • Move order
        • If a card has a gap behind it and is also glowing it helps to look at the subsequent moves which are enabled or disabled by either moving the higher value card behind it before moving it, or by moving it without moving the higher card first.
      • Once you already have a couple spaces behind Kings and your moves are more limited try to think multiple steps ahead with each move to see which subsequent moves are enabled or disabled by making the particular move.
    • Scoring
      • Each card you put into its proper position is worth 10 points.
        • Depending how the cards are dealt (and re-dealt on shuffles) this can lead to a max card-based score of around 480 to 520.
      • The time-based bonus is capped at 600 points.
        • Each second you have have remaining when you beat the game is worth a point.
      • Each move you make costs you 6 points.
        • A good move count is around 100 moves, though it depends on the board layout.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like Solitaire card games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
