────────── ♠♦♣♥ ──────────
The starting point of Solitaire is formed by seven piles of cards and seven open cards. The aim is to place the face up and the face down cards in the correct order on four discard piles. Each ace card forms one pile. Then follow the cards that are numbered and then the Jack, Queen and King.
In order to form the four discard piles, it is necessary to sort the cards accordingly during the game. To do this, the cards in the seven card rows must be sorted according to descending value and color: black – red or red – black. However, as soon as you have the opportunity to place a card on your one of the four ace piles, you can place it right there and don’t have to form the sorted rows first.
There are four different versions of the game to choose from. If you want to play the usual game without much frills, the standard version of the card game is just right for you. If you are looking for a more challenging game, you should play time-limited Solitaire. Alternatively, a game with double the number of cards will appeal to you. Maybe you’re in the mood for a little nostalgia with the popular card game in the iconic Windows XP look?

Solitario de Windows XP
When social media were unknown and monophonic ringtones became popular, remember that time? Maybe you were one of those people who liked to spend time in the office or at home with Solitaire under the Windows XP operating system. We invite you to travel back in time with the Windows XP version of Solitaire.
Solitario con Tiempo Límite
If you no longer feel challenged by the classic solitaire, you are welcome to put a shovel on it: With time as an opponent, all four stacks must be formed within 6 minutes. This version has the advantage that, unlike the normal version, you can start a new row with any playing card and not just with the king.
Can you handle the 6 minutes?
The classic solitaire has 52 cards and four discard piles. This version, however, has 104 playing cards and eight piles where you have to stack all cards in the correct order, starting with the ace. This solitaire version is not more difficult, on the contrary! Since you have four more ways to make piles, it is much easier to solve the not seven but ten rows. Therefore this variation is especially suitable for solitaire beginners.

In this popular variant of Solitaire, there are no four empty spaces on which you have to form sorted card piles. It’s more about sorting the cards on the existing rows correctly. There are different levels of difficulty. At the easiest level there are only playing cards of the same color/suit or type. It becomes more difficult at the middle level with two colors/suits. The most difficult variant of Spider Solitaire includes all four suits: Clubs, Spades, Hearts and Diamonds.
Besides the classic version and the Spider edition, Freecell is another popular solitaire version. It differs in that all cards are face up on the table from the beginning and that you have four free cells in addition to the four ace piles. These free cells can be used temporarily to store cards.

📌 What do I have to do to win at Solitaire?
The objective of the popular card game is to place all cards in four discard piles in an orderly fashion. For each suit – spades, hearts, diamonds & clubs – one discard pile is formed. A discard pile always starts with the ace of the respective suit. The order of each discard pile is as follows: Ace, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, jack, queen, king. To assign cards to the discard pile, the seven rows of cards on the board must be arranged in such a way that cards are available for discarding.
Cards of the card rows can only be arranged in descending order and in changing colour. For example, if a Five of Clubs is face up, you can only place a Four of Hearts or a Four of Diamonds on it. You could also place on the face up Five of Clubs a card sequence that begins with a Four of Hearts or Four of Diamonds. If a card row becomes free, you can start a new row in its place, but this only works with a king.
📌 In which order do I have to stack the cards?
To complete the game successfully, you must make a pile of cards from each of the seven card rows for the suits Hearts, Spades, Diamonds and Clubs. The piles start with an ace and end with the king. Therefore the order is ascending: Ace – Two – Three – Four – Five – Six – Seven – Eight – Nine – Ten – Jack – Queen – King.
To get the cards you want to put on the discard pile, you have to sort the card rows accordingly. The order of the cards on the playing field (also known as tableau) is descending. You can only place smaller values on top of the larger ones. You must also note that the colours must alternate. For example, if you have an open heart or Seven of Diamonds, you can only place a six of clubs or six of spades on it. You can also place a row on the seven of hearts or diamonds that begins with a six of clubs or spades. If you can no longer sort the cards on the board, you can reveal cards from the Talon (face down deck). Sometimes it happens that you uncover aces that you can discard immediately.
📌 Where do I find aces?
Aces are spread all over the game. When you start a new game, it is possible that an ace is already face up on one of the seven card rows. If this is not the case, one or the other ace may be face down in one of the seven card rows. Alternatively, aces can also be in the talon. Unfortunately, there is no strategy on how best to get aces.
📌 What can I do if I get stuck at Solitaire?
Depending on the browser game, you have different options if you get stuck. For example, you can display the next move in the game. If there is no next move, you have to take a card from the deck to continue playing. You may even have to undo your moves. If all of the above options do not work for you, the game is blocked and you will have to start a new game.
