Strategy Solitaire

21.05.2007

Strategy is an unusual game, because dealing the cards is half of the game. You have a choice about where the cards are dealt to. It requires a lot of concentration, but has a good success rate.

Layout

The cards in the deck are dealt one at a time. Aces, whenever they appear, are placed onto the foundations. For all other cards, you have a choice of 8 tableau piles to play each card to.

After the stock becomes empty, cards from the tableau piles can be built on the foundations up by suit. When all cards have been moved to the foundations, the game is won. Otherwise, if no moves are possible, the game is lost.

Game Strategy

The deal is the most important phase of this game. After that, moving cards to the foundation is purely mechanical.

It's important not to obscure a low rank card with a higher ranked card from the same suit. That causes play to be blocked. In general, try to avoid obscuring lower ranks with higher ranked cards. Reserving different stacks for different 'ranges' of ranks can be a useful strategy. For example, you might keep a stack especially for Kings, not placing anything else on it until all four kings are out.

Variation

  • In Strategy Plus, there are only 6 tableau piles. Because of that it provides a lot higher challenge to win.
