HOW TO PLAY. Ronin Solitaire is a variation of the traditional solitaire game played with a 52-card deck. In this version, the starting card from which you build your stacks varies (Jacks, Queens, Kings, or Aces).
When you find a starting card, drag or double-click it to the matching slot in the horizontal row at the top of the game. Stack cards of the same suit in ascending order on top.
There are four ways you can manipulate the cards:
Move cards from the four stacks in the lower horizontal row to the appropriate stack in the upper horizontal row.
Move the bottom card from the vertical stack on the left to either of the horizontal rows as allowed.
Move a card from the Shuffle pile at the bottom of the game to either of the horizontal rows as allowed.
Move individual cards or stacks from the lower horizontal row to another pile in that same row.
Use the lower horizontal row to help uncover cards in the Shuffle pile and left-hand stack. Move cards from these other stacks to the lower horizontal row by alternating number and suit with the exposed card.
For example, if the four of hearts (a red card) is displayed in the second pile in the lower horizontal row, then the three of clubs or three of spades (both black cards) could be played on top of the four of hearts.
If you get stuck, click the Shuffle button to reshuffle the cards in the Shuffle pile. Avoid reshuffling if you can, though, as you receive a 30 point penalty each time you use this feature.
If you really are stuck and want to fold, click the CONCEDE button. This allows you to start another round of solitaire while marking the current game as a loss in the Wins/Losses box.
