Solitaire is an expression that describes all single-player card games. The most popular solitaire game is called Klondike, although there are many other versions of solitaire. Although the games vary in complexity, they all share the same end goal, and that is to sort the cards in some specific manner.

## Babette

The object of this game is to build eight piles from aces up, or from kings down. Stock cards are dealt in front of the player, in a row of eight at a time. When a card is placed on a foundation, the gap it leaves behind is not filled, making the card next to the gap available for play.

## Argos

In this game, the player needs to build three rows of cards before the stock is exhausted. Players build rows regardless of suit, but always doubling the value of the card, that is already placed in the column. If the double of a card exceeds 13, the player needs the excess value of the double over 13 on the card. All four kings go in one column.

## House on the Hill

The players need to complete eight piles to win this game. The piles are built from aces up, and from kings down. While doing this, players need to pay attention to suits of cards. Stock cards are divided into groups of three, and only the top card is available for play.

## Intelligence

The object of the Intelligence solitaire game is to move all the cards to eight foundations in suit from aces to kings. Players can either build up suit or down suit. Stock cards are divided into groups of three, and only the top card is available for play. Two redials are permitted.

## Marco Polo

The object of this game is to build foundations from ace to king, regardless of suit. Stock cards are divided into groups of six, and only the top card is available for play. There is an option of a reserve card, which the player can place on the table at any time, and then use it, whenever they need it.
