Chateau Solitaire

Chateau is an open game with all cards face up from the beginning of play. It uses two standard decks (104 cards) with eight dealt to each of the 13 tableaus. Sequences are built down by rank regardless of suit. The object of the game is to build the eight foundations up by suit from Ace through to King.

How to win

When all cards are moved to the four foundations


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

Strategies & Tips

  • Build sequences on the tableaus by suit instead of by rank
  • Don't let one foundation get too far ahead of the others
  • After the eight Kings are at the head of each tableau, leave the other stacks in place until needed
