Somerset solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Snake | Spanish Patience >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 10 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. Empty piles can be filled with any card.
You can only move one card at a time. Each empty pile doubles the number of cards you can move, since multiple moves would allow it.
Variations: Bath, Morehead, Usk
This game is very similar to King Albert, but with an extra pile in the layout rather than a reserve.
Somerset is a county in South West England. The variation Bath is named after a city in Somerset, while Usk is named after a nearby town.
