Grandfather's Clock Solitaire

Grandfather's Clock Solitaire is played with standard 52-cards deck where all cards are dealt face-up from the start. The aim is to build all cards into a clock shaped foundation by suit so that top cards in the foundation piles show correct numbers on the clock face.

FOUNDATION - At the start of the game a clock is formed using follwoing cards: 9♣, 10♥, J♠, Q♦, K♣, 2♥, 3♠, 4♦, 5♣, 6♥, 7♠, and 8♦. These piles act as foundations.

TABLEAU - The remaining cards are dealt face-up into eight columns with each column getting five cards.

  • The foundations are built up by suit until the card with the correct corresponding number on the clock face is placed (Ace is 1, Jack is 11, Queen is 12).
  • The cards on the tableau are built down regardless of suit.
  • Only the top card of each column is available for play.
  • Spaces in the tableau can be filled with any available card.

The game ends when all cards are placed into the foundations with the clock face showing the correct numbers.

  • Drag and drop cards between two piles.
  • Double click a card to automatically move to the foundation.
