Terrace Solitaire

Terrace Solitaire (also known as Queen of Italy) is a unique game which allows the player to select base card for the foundation at the beginning of the game. The game is played using two-decks of standard 52 cards set.

RESERVE - 11 cards are dealt face-up to a reserve pile.

TABLEAU - 9 Tableau piles. One card is dealt each to first 3 tableau piles face-up at the beginning. Player selects one card to become base card for the foundation. This card is moved to the foundation and after that all empty tableau piles are dealt one card each face-up.

FOUNDATION - Eight foundation piles. First foundation pile gets a base card selected by the player which acts as the lead rank for the game.

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

WASTE - An empty waste pile.

  • Tableau is built down by alternate colors wrapping from Ace to King if required. Only top card of a tableau pile is available for play.
  • Empty tableau pile can only be filled from the top card in the waste pile, or the stock if there is no card in the waste pile. This is done automatically.
  • Top card in the reserve pile can only be played to the foundation.
  • The first foundation pile gets the card selected by the player which acts as the lead rank. Remaining 7 piles must start from the same rank.
  • Foundation piles are built up by alternate colors starting from the lead rank to the rank one below the lead rank, wrapping from King to Ace if required.
  • Player can click on the stock pile anytime which deals 1 card face-up onto the waste pile. No redeal is allowed.
  • Top card from the waste pile can be played to the tableau or foundation piles.

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

  • Drag and drop cards between two piles.
  • Click top card in the stock pile to draw card to the waste pile.
  • Single or Double click (as configured in settings) card in the waste pile or, reserve pile or, any of the tableau piles to automatically move the card (which checks first for a move to foundation and then to tableau).
