Solitaire Card Video Game Play Instructions

How to Play

Build the four suit-based foundations starting from the Ace and working in ascending order up to the King.

  • Starting the Game
    • Click the play button on the game’s welcome screen to start the game. It will offer a basic tutorial on how to play which you can skip through using a yellow button near the bottom of the tutorial.
    • The welcome screen has a full screen button in the upper left corner and a settings button on the right side of the bottom. The settings button opens up the sound and music control settings to allow you to adjust game volume.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use your mouse left click button to drag cards or select a new card from the reserves.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap the screen to select and drag cards.
    • The bottom of the game offers a pause button, a menu button, a controls button, and an undo button.
    • It also lists your score, high score, and how many moves you have made.
  • Game Play
    • Tableau
      • Drag cards from either the waste pile or the tableau to move them to other stacks where they alternate suit and fit in descending order.
      • Only Kings can be laid in open columns on the tableau.
      • You can double click on cards on the waste pile to have them automatically move to either a foundation of the tableau.
      • When all cards on the tableau are face up the game can automatically move all cards to the foundations.
    • Foundations
      • Due to how scoring works it usually makes sense to lay cards on a tableau stack before moving them across to a foundation.
      • You can double click cards on the tableau or reserves to automatically move them to the associated foundation.
    • Scoring
      • 5 points: lay a card from the reserves onto the tableau or move a card or run of cards from one tableau stack to another.
      • 10 points: move a card from the tableau to a foundation.
      • – 15 points: move a card from a foundation back to the tableau.
      • The theoretical high score is 760
        • 520 =10 * 52 (moving all cards to the foundations) +
        • 240 = 5 * 48 (moving all cards to descendent stacks on the tableau before moving them to the foundation
      • Some solitaire games consider time in the final score. This one does not.
    • Strategy
      • In general it is better to lay cards from the tableau stacks rather than cards from the reserves as you need to get all the cards on the tableau face up to be able to beat the game & you can repeatedly shuffle through the reserves.
      • If you need to undo a move you can use the undo button. When you use the undo button it does not reduce or increase your move count, so each move you make and then undo counts as 1 move.
      • This game has a bug in it where it gives you 10 points for moving a card from the reserve pile onto a foundation & does not subtract the 10 points if you use the undo button to move the card back to the reserves.
  • Target Audience
    • This is a simple solitaire card game suitable for anyone looking for a no fuss version of Klondike they can play online.
    • There are no adult themes in the game.
