Auld Lang Syne solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< American Toad | Australian Patience >>
Goal: All 4 aces are set out. Build them up to king in any suit.
Turn up 4 cards at a time from the deck onto 4 waste piles. Once placed, cards can not be moved except to the ace piles.
Also known as: Patience
Variations: Tam O'Shanter
The waste piles are typically in a stack, but you can spread them out to see the cards below. Either way, victory is extremely rare.
As David Parlett states, it "might be described as the next best thing to banging your head against a brick wall".
