American Canister Solitaire

American Canister is an open game (all cards face up). The cards are dealt to the eight tableaus with the first four containing seven cards and the remaining four containing 6 cards. Like Canister except cards are restricted to building by alternating color. This makes it a more difficult game than traditional Canister.

How to win

Move all cards to the four foundations


  1. An Ace may be moved to an empty foundation
  2. Any card may be moved to an empty tableau
  3. The foundations are built up by suit
  4. The tableaus are built down by alternating colours
