Mount Olympus is a popular solitaire game, that does not use cards with adjacent ranks- all the cards go onto ranks which are two away, making the game good for testing your brain!
The aim of Mount Olympus is to build 16 suit sequences in the foundation zone.
How to Play:
At the start of the game, all the Aces and Twos are automatically moved to the foundations.
Cards are built up in the foundations with same suit, but with 2 between each card rank. So the sequence goes A,3,5,7,9,J,K and 2,4,6,8,10,Q
Similarly, cards are built down in the manoeuvre zone, same suit, with the ranks going down by 2. (So a 8 of Diamonds would go on a 10 of Diamonds).
Mulitple cards can be moved in one go, but only if they are in a valid sequence.
Whenever a column is emptied, a card is automatically drawn from the stock.
At any time, you can click the stock, to move a card onto each of the manoeuvre stacks.
Suppose that the initial Mount Olympus deal looks like this:
The starting layout for Mount Olympus, deal #1
Start by moving the 3 of spades onto the Ace of spades, and the 3 of Hearts onto the Ace of Hearts. Notice how new cards are dealt to replace these cards- this happens automatically whenever you empty a column.
Now move the 5 of hearts up... and the 4 of clubs onto the 6 of clubs...
There are still moves we can make, but let's click the stock...
As you can see, this has dealt a card out to every manoeuvre stack.
