Solitaire is a popular single-player card game that has been enjoyed by people for centuries. The game's origin is uncertain, but it is believed to have originated in Germany or Scandinavia in the 18th century. The game became popular in France in the late 19th century, where it was known as "Patience." The name "Solitaire" comes from the French word "solitair," which means "alone" or "lonely."
The game gained popularity in the United States during the 20th century, with Microsoft's inclusion of the game in the Windows operating system helping it to reach a wide audience. Today, Solitaire is one of the most popular computer games in the world and is enjoyed by millions of people.
Solitaire is played with a standard deck of 52 playing cards. The goal of the game is to move all of the cards to the four foundation piles, which are built up in suit from Ace to King.
To begin the game, seven piles of cards are dealt, with the first pile containing one card, the second pile containing two cards, the third pile containing three cards, and so on. The top card of each pile is face up, with the remaining cards in each pile face down.
The remaining cards are placed in a stockpile, with the top card of the stockpile turned over to create a waste pile. The player can move cards between the seven piles and the four foundation piles. Cards in the piles can be moved to another pile if the card being moved is one rank lower and of the opposite color (i.e., a red six can be moved onto a black seven).
Cards in the waste pile can be moved to the piles or foundation piles if they meet the same criteria. The player can also turn over cards from the stockpile one at a time and add them to the waste pile.
If a pile is empty, a King can be moved to the empty pile. When all of the cards in the stockpile have been turned over and there are no more moves to be made, the player can shuffle the waste pile and turn it over to create a new stockpile. The game is won when all of the cards have been moved to the foundation piles in the correct order.
There are many variations of Solitaire, each with its own set of rules and gameplay. Some popular variations include:
This version of Solitaire is played with two decks of cards and requires the player to build down in suit instead of up. The game is won when all of the cards have been moved to the foundation piles.
In Free Cell, all of the cards are dealt face up at the beginning of the game. The player must move cards between eight tableau piles, four foundation piles, and four free cells. The game is won when all of the cards have been moved to the foundation piles in the correct order.
In Bowling Solitaire, the player aims to "bowl" a perfect game by moving cards to form 10 frames, just like in bowling. Each frame has two cards, and the player must use cards from the tableau piles to fill in the frames. The game is won when all 10 frames have been completed.
The Wish is a unique and challenging version of Solitaire. The game is played with two decks of cards, with the Aces removed. The remaining cards are arranged in a pyramid shape, with the top card of the pyramid face up. The player must move cards between the tableau piles and the foundation piles, trying to get all of the cards to the foundation piles in the correct order. The catch is that the player is only allowed to move a card if it's the same rank as the card they're moving it onto. For example, a 7 of hearts can only be moved onto another 7, regardless of suit. This makes the game more difficult and requires careful planning and strategy.
In this game, the player aims to move all the cards to the foundation piles in the correct order. The game is played with two decks of cards and 10 tableau piles. The player can only move cards to the foundation piles if they are in ascending order and of the same suit. The catch is that only one card can be moved at a time, and cards in the tableau piles cannot be moved between columns. This makes the game challenging and requires careful planning and strategy.
Beleaguered Castle is a Solitaire game that is played with two decks of cards. The game is set up with four tableau piles and eight foundation piles. The player must move all of the cards to the foundation piles in ascending order and by suit. The catch is that the player can only move cards that are on the top of each tableau pile, and spaces in the tableau cannot be filled with cards from the waste pile. This makes the game challenging and requires careful planning and strategy.
