Three Blind Mice solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Thirty-Six | Thumb and Pouch >>
Goal: Form 4 same-suit sequences in the layout from king down to ace.
Build the 10 piles of the layout down in the same suit. Any number of cards from the top of a pile can be moved, regardless of rank or suit. Empty piles can be filled with a king.
The 2 undealt cards are available for play to the layout.
Variation of: Scorpion
Difference: There are 10 piles of 5 cards each rather than 7 piles of 7, with the face-down cards in the last 3 piles rather than the first 4. 2 cards remain rather than 3, which are available for play rather than waiting to be dealt.
This variation provides enough differences to change the game a fair bit, but a win is still somewhat rare.
