Russian Solitaire

Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Hard (5%).   Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



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


7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down in suit.  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.






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.



Russian Solitaire is a variation of Yukon.  It is even more challenging that Yukon since the tableau is built down in suit rather than down by alternate color.  This gives the player half the possible moves that Yukon has.  This game is highly recommended for fans of Yukon.
