Solitaire game rules
Solitaire is a legendary single-player card game that can be played with a deck of cards and is available as a free game on most computer systems. To begin, shuffle a standard deck of cards and divide it into seven stacks. Set the stacks face down from left to right, then begin to flip cards face up as follows. The first row should only contain a single card, face up. The second row should contain two cards, one face up, one face down, the third row will have three cards, one face up and two face down, and so on… The seventh row should contain seven cards in the same fashion.
Place the leftover cards to the side to draw from. The goal of Solitaire is to build each row from Ace to King in the same suit with every card alternating in color.
The goal is to move all 52 cards in the deck into four suit-specific foundation stacks above the tableau, beginning with the ace. As cards are exposed in the tableau columns or turned up from the draw pile, they can be moved to the foundation stacks in ascending order.
