Acme - solitaire

Acme is a Canfield type of solitaire game using 1 deck of playing cards.


Acme has 4 Tableau Stacks of 1 card each, and they build down in suit. There are 4 Foundations that build up in suit. The Reserve Pile contains 13 cards which can be played onto the Foundations or Tableau Stacks. The deck turns up 1 card at a time.


Only the top card of a Tableau stack can be moved. These cards can be moved to a Foundation or onto another Tableau stack. The Tableau builds down in suit, and the Foundations build up in suit. Cards from the Reserve automatically fill empty spaces. Any card can fill empty Tableau spaces after the Reserve is empty. There is only one redeal allowed in this game, so only 2 passes through the Deck are allowed.

Tips & Strategies

Rather than using the cards from the deck, try to use all of the reserve cards first. Only two passes are allowed, so use the deck wisely.

Acme II

In this variation, whole tableaux piles can be moved rather than just the top card.
