Thirty-Six solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Thirteens | Three Blind Mice >>

Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.

Build the 6 piles of the layout down in any suit. You can move a group of cards that are in sequence, regardless of suit. Empty piles can be filled with anything.

Each time you are done making moves, deal one new card to the top of the first pile.

Variation of: Six by Six

Difference: Any sequence of cards may be moved. They are not required to all be in the same suit.

George F. Hervey and David Parlett both turn cards from the deck to a waste pile rather than to the first pile in the layout. It's possible they found a source more accurate than Tarbart, but Tarbart is the earliest source referenced here (1905), and he does it the same as in Six by Six. It's also a more interesting game.

Like Six by Six, David Parlett moves out any aces that appear during the deal.
