Penguin solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Penelope's Web | Perseverance >>
Goal: The first card dealt to the layout becomes the base rank. The base cards in the other 3 suits are set aside. Move out the 4th one when you can. Build them up to piles of 13 cards each in the same suit. Aces play onto kings.
Build the 7 piles of the layout down in the same suit. Kings play onto aces. Empty piles can be filled with a card that this one lower than the base rank.
The 7 cells can hold one card each, used to help move cards around.
You can only move one card at a time. As a time-saver you can move an additional card for every empty cell, since multiple moves would allow it.
Also known as: Beak and Flipper
