Intrigue solitaire rules


Play all cards except Queens into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

The 16 foundation piles are divided into 2 groups:
  • The 8 left foundation piles are built upward regardless of suit or color from Sixes to Jacks.
  • The 8 right foundation piles are built downward regardless of suit or color from Fives to Kings, with Kings built onto Aces.

Queen Row

  • Cards from the stock are dealt onto the 8 columns of the Queen row.
  • When a Queen is dealt, it automatically begins a new column.
  • Uncovered end cards may be built onto foundation piles.
  • Any card may be moved onto a Queen after the stock is empty.

Stock Pile

Cards are dealt 1 at a time from the stock pile to the Queen row.


Every card played into the foundations will score.
