Klondike Solitaire is a classic card game where the goal is to build up foundations from Ace to King in the same suit. Known for its inclusion in the Microsoft Windows operating system, Klondike Solitaire is considered the most popular version of Solitaire. There are different variations available, such as Turn 1 and Turn 3.

How to Play Klondike Solitaire


Klondike Solitaire uses a standard 52-card deck. The game setup is as follows:

  • There are 7 tableau piles. Starting from the left, the first pile has 1 card, the second pile has 2 cards, and so on, up to the seventh pile, which has 7 cards. The top card of the tableau piles is dealt face up and rest are face down.
  • There are 4 foundation piles, which should be built in ascending order from Ace to King.
  • The remaining cards are placed in the stock pile, which you can draw from to access more cards. Cards drawn from the stock pile are placed in the waste pile.

Klondike Solitaire setup


The goal of Klondike Solitaire is to move all the cards to the four foundation piles, building each one up from Ace to King in the same suit.


  • The top cards of the tableau piles and the waste pile are available to play.
  • Within tableau you may build card sequences in descending order and alternating colors (e.g., a red 9 on a black 10).
  • You may move cards or sequence of cards within tableau. If a face-down card becomes the top card of a tableau, it is turned face up.
  • Only Kings or sequences of cards headed by a King can be placed on an empty tableau cell.
  • You may draw cards from the stock pile one by one and place them into the waste pile. Cards in the waste pile become available for play. When the stock pile is exhausted, you can refresh it by moving all cards from the waste pile back to the stock pile. You can refresh the stock pile an unlimited number of times.


Klondike Solitaire has several variations that offer different levels of difficulty and gameplay styles:

  • Klondike Turn One: In this version, you draw one card at a time from the stock pile, making it easier to plan your moves and manage the tableau.
  • Klondike Turn Three: In this version, you draw three card at a time from the stock pile. This version is harder difficulty compared to Turn One.
