Peek solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Patriarchs | Penelope's Web >>
Goal: A card is dealt to the first of 4 foundation piles. Play any card of the same suit, regardless of rank. The other foundation piles can only play a rank that has already been played to the previous piles.
4 piles are each dealt 4 cards, all face up. There is no building on these cards. The top card of each pile is available for play.
Turn over 3 cards at a time from the deck, playing the top card to the foundations when you can.
Redeal as often as you wish, returning the waste pile back to the deck.
Also known as: Open Osmosis
Variation of: Osmosis
Difference: All cards are dealt face up.
If you see the same rank twice buried in a pile, be sure to start the foundation for the suit of the uppermost card first, or you will guarantee a loss.
