Following is an overview of the solitaire versions in this free online solitaire game. All are played with a single 52 card deck of playing cards (Jokers removed, of course).
Basic Solitaire (1 Card). This is standard solitaire with 7 tableau piles. It's called 1 Card solitaire because you can flip through 1 card in the draw pile at a time. Also known as Patience or Klondike solitaire.
For more instructions, see my basic solitaire game page.
Basic Solitaire (3 Card). This is also standard card solitaire with 7 tableau piles. The difference between this game and the first one is that three cards are turned over at a time from the draw pile. However, you can only use the draw pile up card.
Freecell Solitaire. This version include 4 free cells that allow you to move cards around. It's considered easier to solve than basic solitaire.
For more instructions on playing this version of solitaire, see my online Freecell Solitaire game page.
Spider Solitaire. This version has 10 tableaus. Unlike regular solitaire, in this free online solitaire game you need to stack cards of the SAME suite in descending order. There is only one suit in this game, Spades. Single-suit is the easiest version of spider solitaire.
For more instructions on spider solitaire, see my online Spider Solitaire game page.
Spider Solitaire (2 Suit). Same as Spider Solitaire, but with Hearts and Spades. You still need to stack the cards in the tableaus by SAME suit.
Spider Solitaire (4 Suit). Same as Spider Solitaire, but with all four suits. This is the most difficult version.
Scorpion Solitaire. Stack cards of the same suit in descending order. Unlike spider solitaire, you can move cards between tableau piles regardless of whether they are already sequential.
Wasp Solitaire. Same as Scorpion Solitaire, but you can move any card into an empty spot in the table.
Yukon Solitaire. Same rules as Basic Solitaire but with a different layout.
I'm fairly sure I've described these accurately, but I'm not an expert at solitaire. If you notice any discrepancies, just let me know and I'll update the descriptions.
