Description

Solitaire King: King Albert is a single player card game.

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 standard deck of fifty-two cards and the object is to arrange all four suits in an sequence starting with the Ace and ascending to the King.
The game starts with all the cards being dealt face up. There are seven rows of cards, the first containing one card, the second containing two and so-on, these form the build area. In addition there is a row of seven cards dealt separately to the build area which are referred to as 'The Belgian Reserve'.

At any time any card can be moved to the foundation provided it is of the same suit and continues the sequence running from the ace to the king. Single cards may be moved from one column to another provided they form a descending sequence and the suits alternate red/black (or black/red)

In the standard game once a card is moved to the foundation pile it stays there. There is a variation to this game that make it easier, this allows cards to be moved back from the foundation to the build area and it is enabled via a menu bar option.

The player scores one point for cards moved to the foundation but scoring stops as soon as the player uses the Undo or Load a saved game options.

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
