Thirteens solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Thieves of Egypt | Thirty-Six >>
Goal: Discard all cards.
10 cards are dealt to form the layout. Their arrangement does not matter.
Move any card to another card if their ranks combine to a total of 13. The 2 cards are discarded, and replaced from the deck.
Jacks, queens, and kings count as 11, 12, and 13. Since kings total 13 by themselves, they are discarded alone.
