Game Play

The top card of the tableau piles, the reserve piles and the waste pile are available for play. When two available cards have a combined total of 14, discard the two cards from the game. When a tableau pile becomes empty, fill the space with the top card of the waste pile, or the top card of the stock if there is not a waste pile.

When no more pairs can be discarded from the tableau, reserve, or waste pile, flip the top card of the stock over to form or add to the waste pile. Play continues until all cards are discarded from the game or there are no more moves.

Valid Pairs


To Win

To win fourteens solitaire, all cards must be discarded from the game in pairs that add up to fourteen. If the player exhausts the stock and runs out of moves before all cards are discarded, fourteens solitaire is lost.
