Solitaire (also known as Klondike Solitaire) is both one of the oldest and simplest card games in the world. But despite its simplicity on its face, there’s a surprising amount of depth in strategy required to consistently win games. Even with the best strategies, there’s always an element of luck in any game, which is part of what makes it so engaging! These tips will maximize your chances of winning the game.

How to play Klondike solitaire game?

The object of Klondike Solitaire is to build four stacks of cards, one stack in each suit. The cards in each stack must run sequentially, ace through king (A-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-J-Q-K). You will build these stacks on the four empty stack piles.

Moving cards

You may move cards from the columns or stack piles according to the following rules:

Cards may be placed on top of the exposed card of each column if they are the opposite color and next in sequence. For example, if the 8 of clubs is the top, exposed card on a column, you may place a red 7 (the 7 of hearts or the 7 of diamonds, suit doesn’t matter) on top of it. Then you may place a black 6 on top of the 7, and so on.

Cards may be moved from column to column individually, or in sequential groups.

When a face-down card in any of the columns becomes exposed, turn it face-up.

When a column is empty, you may move a king to it to restart the column (or a sequential group topped by a king).

Ultimately, your goal is to move cards to the stack piles. You must start each stack pile with an ace. When other cards become available, they may be moved on top of the aces to build the suited stacks. For example, after you have moved the ace of spades to a stack spot, you may later move the two of spades on top of it, then the three of spades on top of the two, and so on until the stack is complete.

After you have moved a card to a stack pile, you man move it back to the columns if you wish.
