Seven Up solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Seven Devils (Relaxed) | Shamrocks >>
Goal: Discard all cards.
Turn up cards from the deck one at a time into one continuous spread, performing discards along the way.
Select any two cards. All cards in between are also selected. If the combined value of all card ranks is a multiple of 7 then those cards are discarded (eg: 7, 14, 21, 28). Sevens can be discarded by themselves.
Jacks, queens, and kings count as 11, 12, and 13.
Also known as: Seventh Wonder, The Magic Seven
A very similar game is Decade, where the added ranks must total 10, 20, or 30.
Rule books don't mention a limit to the number of cards that can be discarded in a single run. Without a limit, you could deal out and select a great many cards, ending the game in only a few moves (or just one move). A 7-card limit has been imposed here, aptly chosen for a game based on the number 7.
