Exiled Kings solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Emperor+ | Faerie Queen >>
Goal: All 4 aces, and possibly more cards, are set out as they appear during the deal. Build them up to king in the same suit.
While the layout is being dealt, cards are immediately moved to the ace piles if they can. If it's an ace, a new dealt card takes its place. Otherwise dealing continues to the next pile.
Build the 8 piles of the layout down in any suit. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles can be filled with a king.
Variation of: Citadel (Beleaguered Castle)
Difference: Only kings can play to empty piles rather than any card.
Citadel is the easiest variation of Beleaguered Castle to win, but this variation is extremely difficult. The versatility of empty spaces has been lost.
