Australian Patience Solitaire Rules


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

The Deal

Using one deck, four cards are dealt face up to each of seven Columns in the layout.


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 are built DOWN in the SAME SUIT. For example, a 6 of Diamonds may only be placed on the 7 of Diamonds.

Any number of cards within a Column may be moved to another Column provided that the above build rule is followed. It does not matter whether the cards being moved are already in sequence or not. For example, a 6 of Diamonds may have a King and a 2 on it. Those three cards may be moved to the 7 of Diamonds.

Empty Columns may be filled with Kings or with a group of cards headed by a King.

Stock and Discard Pile

Cards in the Stock are flipped one at a time to the Discard Pile. The topmost card in the Discard Pile is available for play to either a Column or a Foundation.

There are no redeals.

Game Notes

Australian Patience is a combination of Yukon and Klondike.
