Royal Parade solitaire rules


Play all cards into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

The 24 foundation piles are built upward in suit by threes. The piles are divided into 3 rows:
  • 8 piles in the top row are built from Twos to Jacks: 2-5-8-J
  • 8 piles in the middle row are built from Threes to Queens: 3-6-9-Q
  • 8 piles in the bottom row are built from Fours to Kings: 4-7-10-K

Foundation Play

  • Top cards are available for play.
  • Twos, Threes and Fours may be exchanged between foundation rows if both cards end up on correct foundation piles. Drag a card onto another to exchange.

Initial Deal

Stock Pile

Click the stock to deal 1 card to each reserve pile.
