Game Play

When an ace becomes available, it is moved to form a foundation pile. Foundation piles are built up in suits from ace to king.

The top card of each tableau pile, and every card in the reserve is available for play. You may build onto tableau piles by building down in sequence, disregarding suits. A card or group of cards in the proper sequence in the tableau piles may be played onto other tableau piles. Cards from the reserve may also be used to build on the tableau. When a tableau pile becomes empty, it may be filled by any available card.

Cards may not be moved into the reserve grid. Play continues until there are no more moves.

To Win

To win arizona solitaire, all cards must be built onto the foundation piles.
