Alternations Solitaire

Be sure to check out the rest of our Solitaire Games on the main page.

Alternations Solitaire can be difficult to win, but you can change some game rules on this page to make things easier (more on that later).

Alternation Solitaire gets its name from the interesting pattern that the cards take on the board: specifically one row of cards is dealt face up, then the next row is face down, and so on.

Much like Klondike Solitaire, cards on the tableau are built down (descending) by alternating color (though this rule is configurable) and foundations are built up (ascending) from Ace to King by the same suit.

If you find Alternations interesting but impossible, try some of these tweaks to make it more fun (see Prefs in the top right):
