Playing the Game

Rules: Aces are placed on the foundation as soon as they become available. The foundation is built in ascending order according to suit. Cards may be played onto the top card in any tableau column. The card played onto a tableau column must be the same suit as the top card and may be either one number lower or higher in rank. Groups of cards may be played from any point in the tableau column. An empty column may only be filled by a King. When all the face up cards in a column are moved, the top most card in the remaining pile is turned face up.

Moving cards: To move the cards from one stack to another, use click-to-move. Click the card you want to move, then click the location to where you want to move it. You can also double click on a card to move it to a foundation stack. This makes it possible to use the game on devices that do not have a normal mouse. If your browser offers spatial navigation (such as Opera), you can use that to select the right card, but note that due to the number of positioned elements in close proximity to each other, the spatial navigation may have some trouble selecting the right cards. Note: Drag and drop will work, but the game has a tendency to freeze using this method--usually just as you are about to win. It is not recommended.

To start a new game: Click the "DEAL justly with me"* button or hit F5.

Options: You may select cardsets and card backs. Click the "Come and take CHOICE"** button to access these options.
