Batsford - solitaire

Batsford is a solitaire game similar to Klondike except that it uses two decks instead of one. The cards are turned up only one at a time, and there is only one pass through the Deck. There is also a Reserve pile available for a single King. The object of this game is to move all cards to the Foundations.


Batsford has eight Foundations that build up from Ace to King in suit.

Here is an example: A♣, 2♣, 3♣, 4♣...

There are ten Tableau Stacks ranging from one to ten cards long. Tableau Stacks build down in opposite colors.

Here is an example: 10♠, 9, 8♠, 7...

The game includes one Reserve Pile where a single King can be held. On the left is the Deck that turns up one card at a time.


Cards in the Tableau can be moved to a Foundation or onto another Tableau Stack. The Tableau builds down in opposite colors. Only a King can be moved to an empty space. Click or tap on the Deck to turn one card up at a time. The topmost card can be moved to the Foundations or the Tableau. A single King may be moved to the Reserve Pile as needed. Only one pass is allowed through the Deck, making this an extremely hard game to win. According to Tree Card Games, only about 1 in 20 games are won. The game is won after all the cards have been moved to the Foundations.
