Golf Solitaire is a fun and simple to learn solitaire game. Don’t let the simplicity of the gameplay fool you however as strategy and forward planning can have a big impact on your game. The goal is to move all the cards on the table into the waste pile. You can put a card on the waste pile if it is one number higher or lower than the card currently on top of the pile. For instance if the waste pile has a 3 on top you can move a 2 or a 4 on to it. Try plan ahead and clear the table as efficiently as possible to increase your chances of success. For instance you could put down a chain such as 4-5-4-3-2-A. The non numbered cards are valued as follows:
A=1, J=10, Q=11, K=12
A King can be placed on an Ace and vice versa. If you can’t see any moves tap the draw pile to draw another card. Once the draw pile is exhausted the game is over so use it wisely! This game has the traditional Golf layout but also some other layouts, including those from other games, for you to try. Each layout uses a standard 52 card deck. How many times can you clear each one consecutively? For an added challenge hit random and each round will be a different random layout.
