Doublets solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Double Pyramid | Duchess of Luynes >>
Goal: Discard all cards in matching pairs.
12 piles are dealt 4 cards each with only the top card showing. The last 4 cards remain in the deck.
Move any exposed card to another card if their ranks are the same. The two cards are discarded. Empty piles are filled from the deck.
Nestor is a similar game, with 8 piles of 6 cards rather than 12 piles of 4 cards. There are more cards buried, but a few other changes ease things up a bit.
Take Fourteen is also similar, but adds ranks rather than matching them.
