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.
Now move the Ace up...
Later in the game we get to here...
Unlike in Bakers Dozen, we CAN move a card into the empty column, for example...
