Citadel solitaire rules


Play all cards into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

The 4 foundation piles are built upward in suit from Aces to Kings.

Tableau Wings

  • The 8 tableau wings are built downward regardless of suit or color.
  • Uncovered end cards are available for play.
  • Any card may be played into an empty tableau space.

Initial Deal

As cards are first dealt to the tableau wings, any that can be played into foundations are put there instead of the wings. Thus the game starts with wings of varying lengths.


Every card played into the foundations will score.
