Lesson 1: Focus on the Tableau
Solitaire is easy! Or is it? Solitaire’s fundamental rules are simple, but they amount to a demanding game experience.
There are a few rules of thumb and tactics to meet the challenge successfully. One of them is today’s topic.
Lesson 2: Play With the Foundation
Here, we are dealing with the foundation. That is, ideally, where all cards end up at the end of a round – sorted by suit and rank. It is not only the finish line in Solitaire, but it can also serve you as a relief in the playing field. Read the lesson to find out what that means.
Lesson 3: Klondike Solitaire and Easthaven
You will be all in the know by the end of this lesson at the latest! When saying Solitaire, many people are actually referring to Klondike Solitaire without being aware of it. And here, we shine a light on the differences and similarities of Easthaven and Klondike.

How to Play
Klondike Solitaire is one of many solitaire games, which are also known as patience games in Europe. Here is an outline of the bedrock principles: You need one player, 52 French-suited cards, and a table with three zones, called tableau, foundation, and stock.
In the tableau, you place multiple card piles with each top card revealed. The stock holds all remaining cards face-down to draw from. Now, you must combine the revealed cards tactically in order to reveal and free all cards on the table. The game is solved by placing all cards correctly sorted in the foundation.
Each step of the game follows specific rules, which you can find in detail in our free Solitaire manual. Informative explanations of individual Solitaire terms can be found in our alphabetical Solitaire glossary.
While it sounds easy at first, it packs a punch! Some classic Solitaire games are difficult to solve, and, rarely, one cannot be solved. As there are also countless Solitaire variations, with variations in the setup and difficulty level, we offer you plenty of custom rules.
Solitaire and multiplayer mode are not mutually exclusive: At the Solitaire Palace, you can play free Solitaire live against fellow players from around the world! At the table, everybody gets to solve the same setup to make the solution process comparable. Then, it is about who reaches the solution most effectively and fastest. Every move counts! Focus and solve the game with as few moves and stock rotations as possible!

For playing online using devices with smaller screens, we offer additional deck patterns which are optimized specifically for legibility.
Play Solitaire Online
Over the span of a Solitaire game, many cards are moving over and over. That requires extra focus and attention to not mix up the playing field. Luckily, there is an easy fix: Play free and digitally at the Solitaire Palace! Solitaire gained its massive popularity only after the PC was developed. That is likely due to the computer’s strength in reliably and correctly fulfilling boring tasks. You get to focus on solving the game while the computer arranges the playing field and enforces rules.
