Rainbow (Relaxed) solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Rainbow | Rank and File >>
Goal: One card is dealt to determine the starting rank for the 'foundation' piles. Move out the other 3 when you can, and build them up to piles of 13 cards each in the same suit. Aces play onto kings.
13 cards are set aside as the 'reserve', with the top card turned up and available for play.
Build the 4 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. Any number of cards from the top of a pile can be moved. Kings play onto aces.
Empty piles are filled immediately from the reserve. If the reserve is empty, then empty piles may be filled from the deck.
Turn over one card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
2 redeals are allowed, returning the waste pile back to the deck.
Variation of: Rainbow
Difference: Partial piles of cards are allowed to be moved.
Pretty Good Solitaire by Goodsol Development also builds the layout via any suit, and has no redeals.
