Sultan Solitaire

Sultan Solitaire is played with 2 standard 52-card decks. The aim of Sultan Solitaire is to build eight foundations up from King or Ace to Queen.

SULTAN - One king is taken out from the deck and placed at the center.

FOUNDATION - There are 8 foundation piles surrounding the Sultan (center King). One Ace of the same suit as of the Sultan is taken out and placed at the foundation pile right below the Sultan. Remaining 7 Kings are taken out from the deck and placed at 7 foundation piles surrounding the Sultan.

RESERVE - Eight cards are dealt to eight reserve cells one card to each cell.

STOCK - After dealing cards to the foundations and the reserve cells, remaining cards are set aside forming a stock pile.

WASTE - An empty waste pile.

  • Seven foundation piles start with a King and one with an Ace. Cards can be played in-suit from the reserve or the waste to the foundation piles in ascending order.
  • Only Ace of same suit can be played on top of a King and then played in ascending order in same suit.
  • Reserve cells can be used to place one card at any time. When a reserve cell becomes empty, one card can be moved to it from the waste pile.
  • Cards from the stock pile can be moved to the waste pile one card at a time. Two redeals (total 3 passes from stock to waste) are allowed so once all cards are moved from the stock pile to the waste pile, it can be moved back to the stock pile by clicking on the empty stock pile.
  • Once a card is played to the foundation it can not be moved back to the reserve or the waste.

The game ends when the Sultan (center king) gets surrounded by all his queens.

  • Drag and drop cards between piles.
  • Double-click top card in the waste pile to automatically move one card to an empty reserve cell.
  • Double-click card in a reserve cell to move it to the foundation.
  • Click top card in the stock pile to draw card to the waste pile.
  • Click empty stock pile to move cards from the waste pile back to the stock pile.
