Alternations Solitaire

The aim of Alternations Solitaire is to build eight foundations up from Ace to King using two standard 52-card decks.

TABLEAU - At the begining player is dealt 7 cards each into seven piles. In each pile aletrnate cards are turned face-up (starting from bottom card) leaving remaining cards face-down. This set of piles is known as the tableau.

STOCK - After dealing cards to the tableau, remaining cards are set aside forming a stock pile.

WASTE - An empty waste pile.

FOUNDATION - Eight empty foundation piles.

  • On the tableau, cards are played in descending order, alternate colors. Whenever a card is moved from one pile of the tableau to another and top card of the first pile is face-down, it is turned face up.
  • An empty pile in tableau can be filled with any cards or a sequence of cards.
  • Player can click on the stock pile anytime which deals 1 card face-up onto the waste pile. No redeal is allowed.
  • Foundation piles can contain cards starting from Ace so as Aces become available, it can be placed in one of the foundation piles. Cards of the same suit can then be played on each Ace in ascending order, from low (2) to high (King).
  • Top card from the waste pile is allowed to be moved onto the tableau or foundation piles.

The game ends once all cards are moved onto the foundation piles.

  • Drag and drop cards between tableau piles and/or foundation piles.
  • Click top card in the stock pile to draw card to the waste pile.
  • Double click card in the waste pile or any of the tableau piles to automatically move to the foundation.
