How To Play Solitaire

Updated on August 13, 2008

Solitaire is a commonly known single player card game. This game can be played online or offline. Online, you can find this game on websites such as:

If you've never played Solitaire, don't be intimidated. It can be an easy and relaxing game to play.

When playing, you create "piles" of cards in the correct order: K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, ACE. In the traditional way of playing Solitaire, the cards will be every other color. E.G. If the King is black, the Queen would be red, the Jack would be black, and so on and so forth. This is what makes this game challenging.

You set up the cards so that you have 7 rows. The first row will have 1 card, 2nd row has 2, 3rd row 3, etc. The top card is always face up and the bottom cards are face down. You then leave the rest of the cards in the deck. You then start drawing from the pile and match the cards accordingly until you have 4 complete sets ACE - King.

The game gets easier as you play it, as with most anything you do in your life. Just keep practicing and you'll catch on! :)

      No problem! I love this game, too. Pogo actually has a lot of different versions of the game, so I usually just play there.
