Description

Solitaire King: Busy Aces is a single player card game, it is rated one of the easier games to play with about a 1 in 4 chance of success.

This title was of a number of freeware games that the developer released to promote interest in the full product, Solitaire King which had thirty-one different games and over eighty variations thereof.

The game is played with a two standard decks of fifty-two cards and the object is to arrange all eight suits in an ascending sequence. The game starts with twelve cards being place face up in two rows of six. The player works through the deck of cards moving aces onto the foundation cells as they become available. The twelve cards that are placed face up are used as bases onto which other cards can be moved if they are of the same suit and one lower in rank.

In the standard game the player can only play through the stockpile of cards once and once a card is moved to the foundation pile it stays there. However there are two variations available to the player via the menu bar, one allows them to re-use the stock pile and the other allows cards to be brought back from the foundation into the build area.

The player scores two points for cards moved to the foundation but loses one point for each card turned over from the stock pile and ten points for reusing the deck should that option be enabled.

The game has save/load and undo/redo functions but has no sound and no statistics are kept. It is played entirely with the mouse
