Beat the Dragon is a single player, shareware, solitaire card game. A dragon character appears and makes a sarcastic comment whenever a player fails to complete a game, hence the name.

The object of the game is to transfer all the cards to the foundations building upwards from ace to the king. What makes this game a different to most is the way cards in the game area are built up in sequence and in suit. Suppose in a column there was the king of hearts , the eight of spades and the three and two of hearts (K♥,8♠,3♥,2♥). If another column ended with the nine of spades (9♠) then the eight of spades and all the cards below it could be transferred making the sequence 9♠,8♠,3♥,2♥.

The game has an in-game help function, a scoring system based on cards played and speed of play, a hint function limited to three per game (or one in the unregistered version) and game statistics. It is played entirely with the mouse.
