Poker Square SoliTaire! Rules:

Goal

Build multiple Poker hands to score 100 points or more.

The Deal

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

Stock

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

Layout

The 25 spaces may hold one card each and form 10 hands of 5 cards each (5 rows of cards and 5 columns of cards.) The card next to the Stock must be played to one of the Poker hands or one of the Discards.

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 Poker hands.

SoliTaireNetwork.com is liberal in the rules in providing these spaces. The actual game of Poker Square does not allow for discards. For a bigger challenge, try playing without the Discards.

Scoring

Scoring for the various Poker hands is based on the relative difficulty of obtaining a certain hand in a regular game of Poker.

Each of the 10 hands are scored as follows:

HAND

POINTS

EXAMPLE

Royal Flush100A, K, Q, J, 10 of same suit
Straight Flush759, 8, 7, 6, 5 of same suit (5 sequential cards of same suit)
