Australian Patience Solitaire

Australian Patience Solitaire is played with a standard 52-card deck and its game play is similar to a combination of Klondike and Scorpion Solitaire games. The aim of Australian Patience Solitaire is to build all four suits up from Ace to King using a standard 52-card deck.

TABLEAU - At the begining player is dealt 28 cards face-up into seven piles each pile containing 4 cards. 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 - Four empty foundation piles.

  • On the tableau, cards are played in descending order, same suit.
  • Groups of cards can be moved; the cards below the one to be moved do not need to be in any order, except that the starting and target cards must be built in same suit and descending order.
  • An empty pile in tableau can only be filled with a King, or a group of cards starting with a King.
  • Player can click on the stock pile anytime which deals 1 card face-up onto the waste pile. Only one pass from stock pile to the waste pile can be done. 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).
  • Cards can not be moved from the foundation to any of the tableau piles.

The game is won 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.
