Penguin solitaire rules


Play all cards into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

  • The 4 foundation piles are built upward in suit consecutively, with Aces built onto Kings.
  • A pile is complete when it contains 13 cards.
  • Three foundation cards of the same rank are dealt when the game starts. The fourth card of that rank is dealt at the bottom of the first tableau column.

Tableau Columns

  • The 7 tableau columns are built downward in suit.
  • Uncovered end cards are available for play.
  • Any downward, in-suit card sequence may be moved within the tableau.
  • Cards ranked one lower than the initial foundation card ranks may be played into empty spaces.

Reserve Spaces

The 7 reserve spaces can each hold 1 card. Any card may be played into an empty reserve space.


Every card played into the foundations will score.
