Flower Garden Solitaire

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Object of the game:   To build up four columns in suit ending in the King card.  With Flower Garden Solitaire only one card can be moved at a time. This version of solitaire relies heavily on skill.

When you first begin Flower Garden Solitaire your screen may look like this:

There are a few other versions that may look different but the game is still played the same.

First you will need to find and retrieve all of your Aces.  As some of the Aces are behind some of the other cards they may be hard to get to since you can only move one card at a time. When you move a suit you do not need to worry about the colors, regardless of suit a card can be placed on any suited card.  You may not move a whole column at any time throughout this game, regardless of if you have it built in the correct order.

The game is called Flower Garden because the cards are meant to look like a bouquet.  Once you have your Aces in the foundations you can start to build the rest of your suited cards.  Only the top card in the columns can be moved so patience is needed when you play this game.  You can also pull suits from the column of cards underneath the foundations.

Continue to move the suits up in to the columns, double clicking on the card will send the suit you choose up to one of the columns.   Once a foundation has been cleared you can move an available King card.  Once you move a King to an empty column you can then build that foundation and also move cards up to the columns in order to win your game.

Klondike Solitaire

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Klondike Solitaire is very similar to classic solitaire.  The object of this game is to stack all the cards in the ascending order from Ace to King.  When you stack the cards they must be in opposite colors each time.

When you first start your game you want to try and find as many Ace cards as you can, usually the first one can be hard to find and sometimes it’s one of the first cards you see.

Once you find an ACE card you can double click it and it will be sent up to one of the 4 columns in the upper right hand corner:

Once you find an Ace you can start building your stacks.  (Remember they have to be in opposite colors and ascending from the Ace card to the King card.)

You can start adding cards in each column as well, you can click and drag stacks to other columns as long as they are in the correct order and color.

Even though you can stack some columns with the correct cards you may get stumped.  Sometimes there are no available moves left and you will have to restart your game.

You can also go through the deal stack in the upper left hand corner to try and find cards to use.

When you have gathered most of the Aces and are able to add cards to the stacks in the upper right corner the game will become easier to win.

You will soon run out of cards from the deal stack and then piling your stacks up will be a breeze.

Once you have been dealt all the cards you can double click the cards and add them to the column in the upper right hand corner.  Make sure you click each card in the right order.

Once they are all added you have aced the game!
