How to Play

Basics

A single deck of cards is used to deal 28 cards to the tableau across 7 columns, with 24 cards in the reserves.

This is a 3-level game of Klondike.

Build on the tableau in descending order while alternating suit colors, then build up the four suited foundations in acending order starting with the Aces and ending with the Kings.

Only Kings or descending runs of cards starting with a King can be moved to empty columns on the tableau.

Once a card has been moved to a foundation you can not move it back to the tableau.

Strategy

You can cycle through the reserves an unlimited number of times.

Reserves are turn one, so in most cases it makes sense to play cards from the tableau rather than the reserves. It is also generally best to pull cards from tableau columns with more face down cards under them than shorter stacks if you are choosing betwee two, though sometimes you can consider drawing from the shorter stack and using the move undo button if the card under it is not good.

As you advance through the levels the turn count on the reserve increases. On level 2 the reserves are turn 2 and on level 3 they are turn 3. When the game shifts past turn 1 remembering where key cards (like Aces and Kings) in the reserves are is important for knowing when to lay or lay off in certain situations.

Controls

The right rail of the game contains the game controls. Across the top it shows your level number, current score and how much time remaining.

Under these datapoints are 5 control buttons: undo move, pause game, full screen mode, sound effect control, and music control.

Levels

This game has 3 timed levels with the first level offering a 6 minute limit, the second level offering a 5 minute limit and the third level offering a 4 minute limit.

This game uses draw one on the reserves across all levels.

Scoring

Each card you move to a foundation is worth 50 points. If you have all the cards on the tableau turned face up & have exhausted the reserves then the computer will automatically move your cards to the foundations.

When the computer automatically moves cards to the foundation you do not score points for those moves, so if you are quick at moving the cards to the foundation you may want to leave one reserve card face down while moving the rest of the cards over.

Every second you have remaining when you complete a level is worth 5 points.

Scores are cumulative across levels.

When you lose a level if you click the game over button the game ends. Alternatively you can refresh your web browser to restart on the current level.
