Will o' the Wisp solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Wildflower | Windmill >>
Goal: Build complete same-suit sequences in the layout from king to ace, moving out each when you can.
Build the 7 piles of the layout down in any suit. You can move a group of cards that are in sequence, and all the same suit. Empty piles can be filled with anything.
When you are done making moves, deal one new card to the top of each pile. There must not be any empty piles before doing so.
Variation of: Spiderette
Difference: Rather than dealing out a Klondike-style layout, each pile is dealt 3 cards each, with the top card face up.
This variation by Albert H. Morehead & Geoffrey Mott-Smith offers an increased chance to win, due to fewer buried cards that need to be released.
