Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Medium (35%).  Mostly Skill.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

4 foundation piles (top right) - build up in suit from Ace to King.

 

7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down by alternate color.  Move groups of cards regardless of any sequence.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.   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

 

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.

 

Tips

Uncover the face down cards as soon as possible.  Don't let one foundation get too far ahead of the others.

 

History

Yukon is a variation of Klondike. Russian Solitaire is the same game except with building down in suit, making it much harder.  Yukon originally appeared in the 1949 book The Complete Book of Solitaire & Patience Games.
