Chinese Solitaire is a single player card game.

Superficially the game resembles Klondike solitaire in that some of the cards are face up and they are built into sequences of descending rank and alternating colour.

Forty-nine cards are dealt into seven stacks of seven cards. The first four stacks are dealt face up, the remainder have three cards face down and four cards face up. Cards can be moved between the stacks either singly or on blocks, the only rule being that the card selected must be placed on a card of the opposite colour and one higher in rank - so a seven of hearts could be placed on the eight of spades for example. An empty stack can only be filled by moving a king into it.

The object is to transfer all the cards to the foundations building from ace to the king, the author states that with practice this can be achieved in around one hand in three.

The game has no undo feature, no hint feature, and is played entirely with the mouse
