American Toad - solitaire

American Toad is a solitaire game using two decks of playing cards. This game is similar to Canfield except that the Tableau builds down in suit, and a partial Tableau Stack cannot be moved (only the top card or entire stack can be moved). The object of the game is to move all cards to the Foundations.


American Toad has eight Tableau Stacks. Each Tableau Stack contains one card and builds down in suit wrapping from Ace to King.

Here is an example: 3♠, 2♠, A♠, K♠...

There are also eight Foundations that build up in suit.

Here is an example: 7, 8, 9...

The game includes one Reserve Pile with twenty cards that can be played onto the Tableau or Foundations. There is a deck usually at the bottom right that turns up one card at a time.


One card is dealt onto the first Foundation. This rank will be used as a base for the other Foundations. The Foundations build up in suit, wrapping from King to Ace as necessary. Cards in the Tableau can be moved to a Foundation or onto another Tableau Stack. The Tableau builds down in suit wrapping from Ace to King. Empty spaces are filled automatically from the Reserve. Once the Reserve is empty, spaces in the Tableau can be filled with a card from the Deck, but NOT from another Tableau Pile. When moving Tableau Piles, you must either move the whole pile or only the top card.

Here is an example: If you have a [4♣, 3♣, 2♣, A♣], you can move all four cards or just A♣. You could NOT move [3♣, 2♣, A♣] onto another 4♣.

Tap or click on the Deck to turn up one card at a time. These cards can be moved to the Tableau or to the Foundations. Only two passes through the deck are allowed. The game is won after all cards have been moved to the Foundations.
