Puss in the Corner solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Poker Solitaire (Open) | Puss in the Corner (4 Cards) >>
Goal: All 4 aces are set out. Build them up to king in the same suit color.
Turn up one card at a time from the deck and play it if you can, or place it onto any of 4 waste piles, regardless of rank or suit. Once placed, cards can not be moved except to the ace piles.
One redeal is allowed, returning the waste piles back to the deck unshuffled.
The traditional layout places the aces in the middle, with the waste piles on an angle at each of the 4 corners, hence the name. Some may prefer to lay them out in a row, and spread out the cards to see the ones below.
Variations: Puss in the Corner (4 Cards)
This is similar to Sir Tommy, though the traditional layout has the waste piles set at the corners.
