Duke Solitaire


The game begins with dealing 12 cards to the four reserve cells. All of them are face up but only the top card is free to play. Then four cards are dealt to the four tableau cells. The remaining cards form the stock. The waste pile is beside the stock.


The object of the game is to build four foundation piles up in suit running from Ace to King.


You can build tableau rows down by alternate color. You can place the free card of a row to the foundations, and a free reserve card either to the foundations or to the tableau piles. In Figure, to free A, you can place 5 on 6, then move 9 from reserve to the free tableau space.

When building tableau piles, you can move more than one card if they constitute the tableau sequence.

Empty spaces in the tableau can be filled from the reserve. After the reserve is exhausted, any card or any descending sequence of cards can be played there.

The stock can be reused two times.
