The objective is to move all the cards to their foundations built up rank and suit from Ace to King.

When you begin your screen may look like this.  You want to start building foundations in order of suit and rank but you can only move one card at a time.  This game requires skill and patience.  It is not easily won.


When moving a suited card you can only move it the same suited card.  You must move the same colored suited card as well.  If you can no longer make any plays you can re-deal your cards into sets of 4.   You will find that you will use the stock to reshuffle your cards very often. You can reshuffle the cards by clicking on the stack in the stop left corner.


When you find a card that you are able to move you may find that there is a card underneath that can be used BUT cannot be moved due to you can only move one card at a time.  For instance, you could have 3 movable cards:  a 3, 4 and 5 but when you move the 3 you find a 6 card that you can no longer use since you have moved your cards to cover the 5 suit.  At that point you can try and continue to play if you have some other cards to move or you will have to re-shuffle your cards again.

Continue to uncover the cards and you will soon be able to move suited cards up to their foundations.


You will soon build your foundations and there will be empty spaces within your columns.  You may not place cards there which makes the game a little bit harder to play but that is where the skill comes in to play.


At this point you have pretty much aced the game.  Continue to uncover your cards and before you know it you have won!

Aces Up

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

The objective of Aces Up is to move all suited cards EXCEPT the Ace to the foundation stack.  Check for any cards of the same suit, for example the 3 of diamonds and the 8 of diamonds.  You can move the lower of these two suits to the foundation stack by double clicking the card you want to move.

·         Once the 3 of diamonds is in the foundation stack, you can also move the 8 of diamonds to the stack.

·         Once you have no more moves, click on the deal stack to get a new batch of cards.


Continue to eliminate cards of the same suit from lowest to highest rank, keep in mind that you can’t eliminate the Aces.


·         If you have an empty column, you can move any top card to that column provided the move can be made.

·         The best move to make is to get an Ace card to the top of the column.

·         You can only move the Ace card if it is sitting on top of the column, not placed underneath another card.

·         Remember, the object of the game is to move all cards EXCEPT the Aces to the foundation pile.


·         The game is over and you have won if you can get all cards to the foundation pile and have the remaining 4 aces sitting in each column.

·         There is no re-deal in this game, once you have gone through your initial stack of cards, you must play with what you have.

·         You lose if you have more than the 4 Aces remaining on the table.
