Klondike is a patience game (solitaire cardgame). In the U.S. and Canada, Klondike is known as solitaire,being one of the better known of the family of patience games. Thegame rose to fame in the late 19th century, being named “Klondike”after the Canadian region where a gold rush happened. It is rumoredthat the game was either created or popularized by the prospectorsin Klondike.
Klondike is played with a standard 52-card deck, without Jokers.After shuffling, seven piles of cards are laid from left to right.Each pile begins with one upturned card. From left to right, eachpile contains one more card than the last. The first and left-mostpile contains a single upturned card, the second pile contains twocards (one downturned, one upturned), the third contains three (twodownturned, one upturned), and so on, until the seventh pile whichcontains seven cards (six downturned, one upturned). The pilesshould look like the figure to the right at the beginning of everygame.
The four foundations (light rectangles in the upper right of thefigure) are built up by suit from Ace (low in this game) to King,and the tableau piles can be built down by alternate colors, andpartial or complete piles can be moved if they are built down byalternate colors also. Any empty piles can be filled with a King ora pile of cards with a King. The aim of the game is to build up astack of cards starting with two and ending with King, all of thesame suit. Once this is accomplished, the goal is to move this to afoundation, where the player has previously placed the Ace of thatsuit. Once the player has done this, they will have “finished” thatsuit, the goal being to finish all suits, at which time the playerwould have won. There are different ways of dealing the remainderof the deck:
Turning only one card at a time, but placing no limit on passesthrough the deck.
Turning three cards at once to the waste with no limit on passesthrough the deck, but allowing the player to switch once to asingle pass through the deck one card at a time; after that singlepass, however, the player cannot go back to turning three cards ata time and can turn over no more cards from the waste.
