King of Egypt is one of the 20 new games in version 16 of Pretty Good Solitaire for Windows. It is a variation of the popular Forty Thieves type game Thieves of Egypt.

How to Play

There are eight foundation piles which are to be built up in suit from Aces to Kings. The game is won when all of the cards are moved to the foundations.

There are ten tableau piles. At the start of the game, 1 card is dealt to the first pile, 3 to the 2nd, 5 to the 3rd, 7 to the 4th, 9 to the 5th, 10 to the 6th, 8 to the 7th, 6 to the 8th, 4 to the 9th, and 2 to the 10th. All cards are face up. The remaining cards form a stock in the top left.

In the tableau, building is down by suit, instead of down by alternate color as in Thieves of Egypt. Groups of cards in sequence down in suit may be moved as a unit. Spaces may only be filled by Kings.

Clicking on the stock turns over one card at a time to the waste pile. The top card of the waste pile is available for play on the foundations or tableau. There is one redeal.

King of Egypt is very similar to Thieves of Egypt, but is a harder game to win. Thieves of Egypt can be won most of the time, and average players win about 75% of the time. King of Egypt will be harder than this.
