Following solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Fly | Fort >>
All building requires that suits are in a 'following' order: club, diamond, spade, heart, and back to club.
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king with following suit order.
Build the 6 piles of the layout down with following suit order. Any number of cards from the top of a pile can be moved. Empty piles can be filled with anything.
Turn over one card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
One redeal is allowed, returning the waste pile back to the deck.
Most of the rules are simple and friendly, allowing sequences to be moved and spaces to be filled however you wish. The catch is the suit order. It's a bit mind-numbing at times. Luckily a computer app will prevent you from making an illegal move by accident.
The suit order prevents a pile from moving more than one card at a time to the same ace pile, since the suits will reverse order due to the opposite build direction of the ranks.
