Tips for Winning Solitaire

Solitaire is a highly popular card game that involves organizing an assortment of playing cards into a particular pattern or sequence. Part of the popularity of this game is its heavy online presence and ability to be played on one's own. Solitaire ranges in complexity, allowing players to start small and gradually improve the level of challenge. Some even play solitaire competitively. One of the neatest things about this card game is the number of variations that exist, which always keeps things interesting. Check out these tips and tricks for winning solitaire.

Classic Solitaire

This most basic variation is also known as Klondike Solitaire. The game is not an exact science (it involves a lot of guessing), but there are strategies you can use to improve your odds. For starters, keep your piles as even as possible, taking care not to let any oneget too much farther than the others. Next, make sure to look at the top card of the deck before doing anything else, as it gives you the highest number of potential moves. Lastly, avoid unimportant moves.


Freecell differs from classic solitaire in a few ways, but one thing remains the same: focus on building your foundations evenly. Beyond that, leave your cells open as much as you can so that you can move more cards at a time. The King plays an important role in this game; build on it at the first opportunity, but ensure it's not covering other playable cards.

Canfield Solitaire

Canfield is a variation of the game that has a similar skill level as the original, making it quite popular. Yet again: build your foundations evenly, not letting any get ahead farther than the others. Your main goal is to free up as much space as possible in order to play sequences. Watch carefully and play all possible moves before re-dealing.

Pyramid Solitaire

Pyramid Solitaire is a skill-based version is popular with those who aren't fans of the guesswork involved in simpler solitaire variations. You begin with a pyramid of cards; study it to make sure each card has the necessary matches to free them up without blocking each other. Doing so helps you make sure the game is indeed winnable. A pro tip is to attempt making matches from the waste pile.

Spider Solitaire

Spider Solitaire is the most challenging version on our list. The beginning is very important to your success for the rest of the game. Get as many spaces as you can early. Take every opportunity, even if it's just one or two spaces. Patience is key. Take the time to get your sequences into the correct suit order, and shoot for a 13 suit sequence. Solitaire is a fantastic game that's great for all ages. The variations in skill level let you choose you experience, and the strategic nature of the game helps keep the mind sharp. These tips will help you play these popular versions like a champ!
