% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Solitaire is one of the most common card games that is played around the world every day. In the earliest days when the internet was not available easily or expensive compared to today’s availability of the internet, most solitaire games were played offline on the Microsoft Windows operating system. But in today’s time, you can now play online solitaire from anywhere in the world, which is free of cost and also there are so many types of solitaire games available on the internet that are also free and can be played online. I am sharing with you the most common and popular types of solitaire which once you should try.


FreeCell Solitaire is a different type of Solitaire game available in the Solitaire game family. It is a similar solitaire game as other solitaire games like Klondike, spider solitaire. FreeCell played with 52 decks of the cards and dealt into 7 piles. In the FreeCell Solitaire game, all cards are deals and there are no Stockpiles. And also all cards are facing upward and should be visible to the player on the tableau or game area. By using the suit, building a foundation is the final goal in the FreeCell solitaire game. The 4 empty spaces that exist on the tableau are called free cells. Cards can be held by sending in the free cells and if you want to build a pile or foundation sequence of the cards again you can call these cards from the free cells. 


Klondike Solitaire is a common type of Solitaire card game. For winning the Klondike Solitaire you have to build a set sequence of the cards by using a suit from Ace to King in the foundations. The arrangements of 52 cards are laid down on the tableau from left to right in 7 piles and all the cards are facing downturned and the topmost card which will be upturned in each pile. The players have to build sequences of the cards to approach and reveal the bottom card of the piles by moving cards in the piles. From King to Ace in descending order with alternating colours sequences of the cards have to build on the tableau. Only Kings can move into the foundations or empty spaces on the tableau. And the remaining cards that are not dealing into the piles are sent to a Stockpile. And these remaining cards can be called into gameplay to help the players to build their sequences. 

Spider Solitaire

Spider Solitaire is a card game that is a member of the family of solitaire. For playing Spider solitaire you should have two decks of cards 52 in each deck. To win the game you have to build 8 foundations. The tableau or game area layout of the cards is quite similar to the Klondike, which includes piles, a Stockpile, and the foundations. However, you have to send full sequences of the cards to the foundations and while other cards are uncovered. And the goal is also quite similar to other types of solitaire which are to build sequences of the cards in the piles, from King to Ace by using a suit. If more than one suit is used in the game then the game becomes more challenging. 

Pyramid Solitaires

Pyramid Solitaires where all cards are arranged in the form of a pyramid on the tableau or game area. And there are simple rules and layout in the pyramid solitaire game. In the Pyramid Solitaire game, 28 cards are laid on the tableau or game area, and all cards are facing forwards, in the shape of a pyramid. And only the cards that are not covered can be called into gameplay. The victory goal in pyramid solitaire is to deconstruct the pyramid by pairing cards whose total is 13 points, nevertheless of their suit. When using a 52 deck of the cards, the King is valued at 13 and can be removed by itself. And Queens is valued at 12 and the Jacks at 11. The player can draw one card at a time from the Stockpile to try to find a match for a card on the pyramid.

TriPeaks Solitaire.

TriPeaks Solitaire is also called three peaks, triple peaks or tri Towers. You can play the TriPeaks solitaire game with a 52 deck of cards. And all cards are positioned in the four rows of pyramids on the tableau or game area. And the base of each pyramid consists of four cards facing forwards and others are facing downwards. And a Stockpile where the remaining cards take place. The goal of the TriPeaks Solitaire game is to eliminate all the cards from the tableau or game area. To do this, the player must deconstruct the pyramids by building sequences of the cards, by using the suit. And the top card of this pile becomes the base for the next sequence of the cards. If there are no more moves available in the game the player can use the Stockpile to build the sequence of the cards.
