The most popular 3 types of Solitaire games

1. Klondike

The most popular version of "Solitaire" is "Klondike." "Klondike" is played with a 52-card deck. The purpose is to position them on the foundations in order of suit, beginning with the Ace and concluding with the King.


On the tableau, the cards are dealt into seven heaps (the game area). Except for the top card in each pile, all of the cards are face down. To gain access to and disclose the bottom cards, players must create sequences and move them within the piles. On the tableau, sequences are formed in descending order (from King to Ace) and with alternating colors. Only Kings can be moved into empty tableau slots.

The cards that were not dealt into the piles are arranged in the Stock pile. These can be used to assist players in building their sequences.


2. Spider

Although Klondike is the most popular version in general, "Spider Solitaire" is the most popular among 2-deck Solitaire games. It gets its name from the eight foundations that must be built in order to win the game, and spiders typically have eight legs. The odds of winning a solitaire spider game are said to be one in every three.

"Solitaire Spider" use two decks of cards. It can be played with one or more suits, depending on the difficulty level. The tableau is set out similarly to the Klondike, with heaps, a Stock pile, and foundations. The cards, however, are all revealed, and only whole sequences can be delivered to the foundations.

The objective is to construct suit sequences within the piles, beginning with the King and finishing with the Ace. When more than one suit is employed, the game becomes significantly more difficult.

Tapping on the Stock pile adds a card to each pile.

3. FreeCell

FreeCell Solitaire is the most similar to Klondike (the standard version) among the various forms of Solitaire games. It is, nevertheless, seen as a more strategic form of the latter, as it necessitates a more thorough and intentional approach.

Despite this, it is one of the Solitaire games with the highest solvability. It is expected that 99 percent of its transactions are solved.

The gameplay of FreeCell is the most comparable to that of Klondike. It similarly employs a single deck, with the cards placed into seven heaps. However, in this Solitaire game, all cards are dealt and there is no Stock pile. The cards are also visible to the player and facing forward. The idea is to lay the groundwork suit by suit.
