Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Hard (13%).  Mostly Skill.

 

Object

To group all the cards into 4 sets of 13 cards in sequence down in suit from King to Ace.

 

Layout

4 foundation piles (top right) - move entire 13-card King to Ace down in suit sequences from the tableau.

 

7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down in suit, wrapping from Ace to King if necessary.  Move groups of cards regardless of any sequence.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards with headed by a King (see KingOnly for option).   At the start of the game 1 card is dealt the first pile, 2 cards to the 2nd pile, and so on.  The top card is face up.  Then 4 additional face up cards are dealt to the 2nd through 7th piles.

 

Options

AutoPlay   KingOnly

 

Notes

Any face up card in the tableau may be built upon another, no matter how deep it is in a pile.  All cards covering it are moved together.  When a face down card is uncovered, it is automatically turned face up and is available for play.

 

History

Ukrainian Solitaire is a cross between Russian Solitaire and Spider.  Its origin is unknown.  It was reported to the author by Jay York, who learned the game from a college roommate who learned it from his Ukrainian grandmother.
