Cornelius is a combination of the popular games Yukon and Forty Thieves invented especially for Pretty Good Solitaire.

How to Play

There are 10 tableau piles. At the start of the game, 4 cards are dealt face up to each pile, just as in Forty Thieves. The remainder of the cards form a stock. There are eight foundation piles, which will be built up in suit from Ace to King. The game is won when all the cards are moved to the foundations.

Building in the tableau is down by suit. But groups of cards can be moved regardless of any sequence, just as in Yukon. Spaces in the tableau can be filled only with Kings, or a group of cards headed by a King.

The stock is turned over one card at a time by clicking. There is one redeal.

Cornelius has the layout of Forty Thieves with the group moving methods of Yukon.

An average player can win Cornelius about 60% of the time.
