Box Kite solitaire rules


Play all cards into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

The 8 foundation piles are divided into 2 groups:
  • The 4 top piles are built downward in suit from Kings to Aces, 1 pile of each suit.
  • The 4 bottom piles are built upward in suit from Aces to Kings, 1 pile of each suit.
  • If a pile contains more than one card, its top card is available for play on the other foundation pile of the same suit.

Tableau Piles

  • The 12 tableau piles are dealt around the foundations.
  • The piles are built upward or downward regardless of suit or color consecutively, with Kings and Aces built onto each other.
  • Top cards are available for play.
  • Empty tableau spaces are not filled.


Every card played into the foundations will score.
