Classic Solitaire: Spanish Patience

Spanish Patience is similar to Bakers Dozen, with 2 differences... the Kings are no moved to the top of their stacks, and empty columns can be filled. The aim of Spanish Patience is to build 4 ascending suit sequences in the foundation zone.

How to Play:

The tableau contains:

  • a manoeuvre zone with 13 stacks of 4 cards.
  • 4 foundation stacks at the top right of the screen.

In the manoeuvre zone, form descending sequences, regardless of suit (Eg: 7 of Clubs, on 8 of Diamonds, on 9 of Hearts...)

In the foundation stacks, form ascending sequences of the same suit. (Eg: 3 of Diamonds, on 2 of Diamonds, on Ace of Diamonds...)

Only a single card can be moved at once.

Spanish Patience Example:

Suppose that the initial Spanish Patience deal looks like this:

The start of Spanish Patience deal #1...

You might start buy moving the 8 of Diamonds onto the 9 of Clubs, to get access to the Ace.
