Blackjack Square SoliTaire! Rules:

Goal

Build multiple Blackjack hands to score 30 points or more.

The Deal

The layout starts the game empty. The Stock flips over one card.

Stock

The face up card near the Stock must be played to a place in the Blackjack hands or a Discard Pile. As each card is played, the Stock will automatically flip another card.

Layout

The 16 spaces may hold one card each. The spaces form nine hands of from 2 to 5 cards each depending on the position of the spaces. There are two hands of 2 cards, two hands of 3 cards, three hands of 4 cards, and two hands of 5 cards.

Once a card is placed it may not be moved.

Discards

There are four spaces where cards may be placed that are not wanted in the Blackjack hands. Each space may hold one card.

Scoring

Scoring for the various Blackjack hands is based on how close the player comes to 21 in each hand. Face cards count as 10. Aces can count as either 1 or 11.

Each of the nine hands are scored as follows:
