Chinese Solitaire

Chinese Solitaire is very similar to Yukon in gameplay. The aim of Chinese 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 7 cards each into seven piles. This set of piles is known as the tableau. All cards in the first three tableau piles are turned face-up. Remaining 4 piles have top 4, 3, 2, and 1 face-up cards.

STOCK - Remaining 3 cards are set aside forming a stock pile.

FOUNDATION - Four empty foundation piles.

  • On the tableau, cards are played in descending order, alternate colors.
  • 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 sequence and in alternate color. When a card or a group of cards is moved from one pile of the tableau to another, face-down top card from the first pile is turned face up.
  • An empty pile in tableau can only be filled with a King and can then be played in descending order and alternate colors.
  • 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 foundation is not allowed to be moved to any of the tableau piles.
  • Cards in the stock pile can be dealt to first 3 piles of the tableau if no further move can be made in the game.

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

  • Drag and drop cards between piles.
  • Double click top card in any of the tableau piles to automatically move to the foundation.
