BatB Klondike

Playing the Game

Rules: The game follows the basic rules of Klondike solitaire. As they become available, the four Aces may be played above the tableau onto the foundations. Cards of the same suit are played onto them in ascending order, 2 to King. On the tableau layout, cards are played in descending order and alternating color. If you remove an entire stack of cards from a column, you may turn the next face-down card up. Kings may be moved to any empty column. You can choose to turn the cards in the draw pile over one at a time or three at a time.

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.
