Gaps Solitaire Rules


Arrange cards in the four rows left to right from Two to King.

The Deal

Using one deck, All 52 cards are dealt in 4 rows of 13 non-overlapping cards. After all cards have been dealt, the Aces are removed from play forming the four gaps.


After the Aces are removed, rearrange the cards forming a suit sequence in each Row from 2 to King.


A card may be moved onto an empty space if the card is one rank higher than the card on its left and of the same suit.

When a leftmost space is empty it may either be filled with any 2, or a card one rank lower and of the same suit as the card to the right of the space.

Tip: Once a 2 is in place, it may still be moved to another space.


When play comes to a standstill, the cards that are not in proper sequence are gathered up, reshuffled, and redealt. Two redeals are allowed.

Example Plays

This section will demonstrate the basic movements of the game.

On the bottom row, you may move the two of Spades to the 1st Gap on the left because twos may always be moved to the leftmost gap on each row. You could also move any of the twos there if you want.

Also on the bottom row, you may move the 6 of Spades to the right of the 5 of Spades because the 6 is the same suit and one rank higher than the 5.

No cards may be moved to the right of the Kings in the 2nd row because no cards are higher than Kings.
