Nationale solitaire rules


Play all cards into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

The 8 foundation piles are divided into 2 groups:
  • The 4 left foundation piles are built upward in suit from Aces to Kings, 1 pile of each suit.
  • The 4 right foundation piles are built downward in suit from Kings to Aces, 1 pile of each suit.

Tableau Columns

  • The 12 tableau columns are built upward or downward in suit consecutively, with Aces and Kings built on each other.
  • Uncovered end cards are available for play.
  • Any card may be played into an empty space.

Initial Deal

As cards are first dealt into the tableau columns, any card that can be played on a foundation pile will automatically be played. This means that games may start with different numbers of cards already in the foundations.


Every card played into the foundations will score.
