WHY CAN'T I SEE THE GAME?

This game uses HTML5 technology. Your browser does not support HTML5, likely because it is out of date.


HOW CAN I PLAY?

You can do ONE of these things:
  • Recommended: Install and use the latest version of Firefox or Google Chrome. The games play best in these browsers.
  • OK: If you are using Internet Explorer, update your browser to the most recent version (version 9 or 10.) Internet Explorer 9 requires Windows Vista or Windows 7. Internet Explorer 10 Requires Windows 7 or Windows 8.
  • Also OK: Another option for Internet Explorer is to use the Google Chrome Frame Plug-In. This option adds HTML5 technology to Internet Explorer for websites that require it. Installation is fast and easy. You must close and restart all browser windows after installation.
  • Not Recommended: You may also use the old Java versions of the games by clicking the link above this game space. Support is limited. You should also be aware that Java has security issues. While the games at SoliTaire! Network are safe, visiting a malicious site while Java is enabled in your browser can result in malicious aplications being installed.

Bristol SoliTaire! Rules:

Goal

Move all cards to the four Foundation piles from Ace to King in the same suit.

The Deal

Using one deck, each of the eight Columns are dealt 3 cards. The remaining cards form the Stock.

Foundations

Foundations are built UP and IN SUIT starting with an Ace and ending with a King. For example, a 2 of Clubs can be placed on an Ace of Clubs, then a 3 of Clubs, then a 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, up to the K of Clubs. The same holds true for the other suits.

Columns

Columns are built DOWN in ANY SUIT. For example, any 6 may be placed on any 7.

The topmost card in any Column is available for play to either another Column or a Foundation. Only one card may move at a time.

Empty Columns may be filled with Kings.

Stock

Three cards from the Stock are dealt to the three Discard Piles - one card to each Discard Pile. When no cards remain in the Stock, the play may continue but there is no redeal.

Discard Piles

Only the top card from each of the three the Discard Piles may be played elsewhere. When a card from a Discard Pile is played then the new top card can also be played.

Game Notes

Another variation of Bristol allows for Foundations to be built up in any suit, but then empty Columns cannot be filled with any card. Kings when dealt are moved to the bottom of a Column so that it doesn't block the game. SoliTaireNetwork.com may provide this interesting variant in the future.
