Triplets solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Triple Line | Usk >>

Goal: Discard all but two cards.

The entire deck is dealt into 18 piles, 6 cards to each pile except the last 2, which are dealt 4 cards each.

Select the top card of any 3 piles whose ranks are continuous. King wraps back to ace, and is continuous. The 3 cards are discarded.

Two cards will remain in a winning game.

Variation of: Triple Alliance

Difference: The game is played with 2 decks rather than 1, with twice as many cards dealt to each pile.

As noted in Triple Alliance, both games are known by both names. Miss Whitmore Jones lists the 2-deck variation under the name Triplets.
