Klondike Garden SoliTaire! Rules:
Move all cards to the four Foundation piles from Ace to King in the same suit.
Using one deck, 28 cards are dealt to the layout. There are 7 Columns. The 1st Column is dealt one card, the 2nd is dealt 2, 3rd 3, up to the 7th column which is dealt 7 cards. All cards are dealt face down except for the last card in each Column. The Reserve cards above the layout are dealt all remaining cards.>
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.
When all cards in the Columns are face up, Reserve cards score an extra point each.
Columns are built DOWN in ALTERNATING COLOR. For example, a red 6 may be placed on a black 7.
All face up cards in any Column are available for movement to another Column as long as the build rule is followed. For example, a red Queen, black Jack, and red 10 can all be moved to a black King because the connecting cards (the K and Q) follow the rule that cards are built Down and in Alternating Color.
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 Kings (or stacks of cards with a King) or any card from the Reserve.
Any card from the Reserve - the "Garden" - may be played at any time providing that all Build rules are followed.
