British Canister Solitaire

British 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 six cards. Like American Canister except only one card can be moved at a time and only Kings may be moved to empty tableua spaces. This makes it a more difficult version than both American Canister and Canister.

How to win

Move all cards to the four foundations


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