Aces and Kings - solitaire

Aces and Kings is a solitaire game using two decks of playing cards. The object of the game is to build 8 Foundations down from King to Ace or up from Ace to King without regard to suit.


Aces and Kings has eight Foundations total. Four Foundations start with an Ace and build up regardless of suit.

Here is an example: A, 2♠, 3, 4

The other four start with a King and build down regardless of suit.

Here is an example: K♣, Q, J♠, 10♣

The games includes two Reserve Piles of thirteen cards each that can only be played onto the Foundations. At the bottom left, there is a Stock Pile and a Waste Pile. At the bottom right, there are the four Tableau Piles of one faced up card each.


The cards in the Tableau can only be moved to the Foundations, making Aces and Kings a difficult game to win. Empty Tableau spaces are automatically filled with the top card from the Stock Pile. After the Stock Pile is emptied, any card from the Waste Pile can be moved to the Tableau. If necessary, the cards can be transferred from one Foundation pile to another. The game is won after all the cards have been moved to the Foundations.
