    Many Solitaire games can be played on smaller surfaces than a card table. Others necessitate a larger playing surface, and these games are frequently played on the floor or on a bedspread. Miniature playing cards are also available for use with large layouts on a card table. These are typically half the size of traditional playing cards.

    THE PACK

    Almost all Solitaire games use one or more standard 52-card packs. One 52-card pack is used in standard solitaire.

    THE GAME'S OBJECTIVE

    The first goal of klondike solitaire is to release and play certain cards into position to build up each foundation, in sequence and in suit, from the ace to the king. The ultimate goal is to build the entire pack onto the foundations, and if that is accomplished, the Solitaire game is won.

    CARD RANKING

    In Solitaire games, the cards are ranked as follows: K (high), Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, A. (low).

    THE DEAL

    In Solitaire, there are four types of piles:

    The Tableau: The main table is made up of seven piles.
    The Foundations are four piles upon which an entire suit or sequence must be built. The four aces are the bottom card or base of the foundations in most Solitaire games. Hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs are the foundation piles.
    If the entire pack is not laid out in a tableau at the start of a game, the remaining cards form the stock pile, from which additional cards are brought into play according to the rules.
    The Talon (or "Waste") Pile is a pile of cards from the stock pile that have no place in the tableau or on foundations.
    Seven piles must be created in order to complete the tableau. Starting from left to right, make the first pile by placing the first card face up, then deal one card face down for the next six piles. Starting from the left, deal one card face up on the second pile and one card face down on piles three through seven. Starting from left to right, deal one card face up on the third pile and one card face down on the fourth through seventh piles. Continue in this manner until pile seven has one card facing up on top of six cards facing down.

    The remaining cards are arranged in a stock (or "hand") pile above the tableau.

    When you first start out, there are no cards in the foundations or waste pile.

    THE PLAY

    The initial array can be changed by "building" - transferring cards between the tableau's face-up cards. Certain tableau cards can be played at the same time, while others cannot be played until certain blocking cards are removed. For example, if one of the seven cards facing up in the tableau is a nine and another is a ten, you can place the nine on top of the ten to start building that pile in sequence. You have unblocked a face down card by moving the nine from one of the seven piles; this card can now be turned over and is now in play.

    If an ace is discovered while transferring cards in the tableau and beginning to build sequences, it should be placed in one of the foundation piles. The foundations are built in order of suit, from ace to king.

    Continue to arrange the cards in the tableau in a logical order. If you can't move any more face-up cards, use the stock pile by flipping the first card over. This card can be used in either the foundations or the tableau. If you are unable to play the card in the tableau or foundations piles, place it in the waste pile and turn over another card from the stock pile.

    When a vacancy in the tableau is created by the removal of cards from elsewhere, it is referred to as a "space," and it is extremely important in manipulating the tableau. If a void is formed, it can only be filled by a king. Filling a space with a king may allow one of the face down cards in another pile in the tableau to be unblocked.

    Continue to transfer cards in the tableau and bring cards into play from the stock pile until all of the cards in the foundation piles are built in suit sequences to win!
