Good Measure Solitaire




Good Measure Solitaire

Good Measure Solitaire is a variant of Baker's Dozen Solitaire where two aces are initially dealt to the foundations, and the remaining 50 cards are dealt into 10 piles of 5 cards. The top card in each of these piles may be moved between the piles or to the foundations. The foundations are built up from Ace to King by suit, and the piles are built down regardless of suit. Like in Bakers Dozen, all Kings are moved to the bottom of each of the piles. The player wins when all the cards have been moved to the foundations.

How to play Good Measure

Two aces are removed from the deck and placed into the foundation. The remaining 50 cards are dealt into 10 piles of 5 cards. The bottom card in these piles is turned face down and all other cards are face up. Any Kings dealt face up in a pile are automatically moved to the bottom of that pile. This makes it more difficult for a player to get stuck because a King is blocking all the cards on the bottom of a pile. The player is allowed to move only the top card in each pile. The player may move that card between the piles, or to the foundations. The player may move a card to a different pile if that card can build the pile down regardless of suit. The player may move a card to the foundation if it builds the foundation up from Ace to King, by suit. When all the cards in a pile have been removed, that pile may no longer be used. The player wins when all the cards in the deck have been moved to the foundations.
