Double Klondike SoliTaire! Rules:

Goal

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

The Deal

Using two decks, 45 cards are dealt to the nine Columns. The 1st Column is dealt 1 card, the 2nd Column is dealt 2 cards, etc up to 9 cards in the 9th Column. The last card in each Column is face up. The remaining cards form the Stock.

Foundations

Foundations are built UP and IN SUIT starting with an Ace and continuing on to a King. After each Foundation has its first King then the other Ace of that suit can be played on the King and the second group of A through K may be played to the Foundation. 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. Then the second Ace of Clubs may be played on the King of Clubs, then the 2, 3, etc. up to the second King of Clubs. The same holds true for the other suits.

Columns

Columns are built DOWN in ALTERNATING COLOR. For example, a red 6 may be placed on a black 7.

Any grouping of face up cards in Columns are available for movement to another Column as long as the build rules are followed. For example, suppose a Column has a red Queen, black Jack, red 10, and black 9. It is acceptable to move the black Jack and following cards to another red Queen.

No cards may be built upon Aces in Columns.

The topmost card in any Column is available for play to either another Column or a Foundation. When a face down card is the topmost card in a Column, it is flipped face up.

Empty Columns may be filled with any card or cards that may be validly moved.

Stock

Cards from the Stock are flipped three at a time to the Discard Pile. When no cards remain in the Stock, the cards from the Discard Pile can be flipped over and gone through an unlimited number of times.

Discard Pile

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

Game Notes

Double Klondike is a Double deck variant of the standard Klondike game. Some variants of Double Klondike have 8 Foundations, SoliTaireNetwork.com may provide this variation at some point in the future.

SoliTaireNetwork.com's version of Double Klondike allows for any card(s) to be placed in empty Columns. Many people also play that only Kings may fill empty Columns. SoliTaireNetwork.com's philosophy is to be liberal with the rules. Players who wish to play that only Kings may fill empty Columns are free to restrict themselves to that rule.
