Grandfather's Clock Solitaire Rules


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

The Deal

Using one deck, twelve Foundation cards are removed from the deck and placed in a circle resembling a clock face. The cards placed are always the same.

The remaining 40 cards are dealt face up evenly to eight Columns.


Foundations are built UP and IN SUIT so that when the game is won the last Foundation card in each location corresponds to the number on a clock. For example, the card at the one o'clock position must end with an Ace of Hearts. The card at the six o'clock position must end with the 6 of Spades, etc.

Jacks are 11, and Queens are 12. Foundations will wrap from King to Ace when necessary.

Foundations may not advance past their clock face values.


Columns are built DOWN in ANY SUIT. Only one card may be moved at a time.

Empty Columns may be filled with any card.
