The tableau piles are numbered from one to seven. The first pile has one card on it, the second has two and so on. The top card on each tableau is turned face up and the cards below are turned face down. The cards that are left after the cards have been moved to the tableau are placed face down on the stock. Both the waste and the foundations start off without any cards on them.
To win in Solitaire, all the cards need to end up in the foundation piles. The foundation piles are ordered by suit and rank. Each foundation has one suit and cards must be placed on the foundation in order (ace, one, two, etc). To get to move cards to the foundations, you can use the moves described below.
The game measures the time and moves it takes to complete the game. You can see the time and moves up in the right corner of the game. You also have the option of turning off tracking of time and moves. You can do this under settings.
The scoring used, is the classic Microsoft Solitaire scoring, used in the Windows™ solitaire card games. You can see a table of the scoring below:
|Waste to tableau||5|
|Waste to foundation||10|
|Tableau to foundation||10|
|Turn over tableau card||5|
|Foundation to tableau||-15|
Moving a card from the waste to the foundation will get you 10 points. If you first move it to a tableau and then to a foundation, then 5 points are added and you’ll receive a total of 15 points. So to receive a maximum score, you should always move cards from the waste to a tableau before moving them to the foundation.

Solitaire has been around for ages. The earliest printed references to the game date back to 1746. The version of solitaire we know today is more likely to have come about around the end of the 18th century.
Some people speculate that solitaire arose as a form of fortune telling in the Baltic area of Europe. Solitaire became popular in Europe along with fortune telling and in Scandinavian countries, solitaire is known as "Cabale" which is related to cabal, a mystical interpretation of the old testament.
A game called Patience originated in England around the same time as Solitaire. The first mention of the game in English literature has French references, which hints to the theory that the game first originated in France.
In the beginning, there might have been some differences between Solitaire and Patience, but these days, people use the names interchangeably to describe the same game.
Solitaire really saw its popularity spike during the industrial revolution. Many new forms of Solitaire developed in that period. Most popular of them was Solitaire, or Patience and Classic Solitaire as it’s also known, but Spider Solitaire, Freecell Solitaire and Russian Solitaire also became increasingly popular.
It’s not many years since Microsoft hosted the world championship in solitaire, to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of everyone's favorite card game.
