Queenie Solitaire Rules

Queenie SolitaireThis is a cross between Klondike and Spider, invented by Thomas Warfield.

Initial Layout

1 Deck. Deal one card to the first tableau pile, two cards to the second, three to the third, and so on for each of the seven tableau piles. All cards are dealt face-up. The remainder of the held are held in the stock.


The object of the game is build the four foundation piles up in suit from Ace to King.

Moving Cards

Within the tableau, cards are down by alternating color. Cards may be moved singly or in groups, regardless of sequence or suit. That is, any face-up card in the tableau may be built upon another, no matter how deep it is in a pile. All cards covering it are moved together. When a face-down card is exposed, it is automatically turned face-up, and is available for play. Spaces in the tableau may only be filled by a King.

The Stock

When you have exhausted all the plays among the tableaus and foundations, click on the stock pile to deal another card face-up to each of the tableau piles.
