Objective

Move all the cards to the eight foundations.

Deal & layout

Algerian Patience is played with two decks (104 cards). Six cards are dealt face-up to each of the six reserve piles. Then each of the eight tableau piles is dealt one face-up card, and the first four tableau piles receive one extra. The remaining cards go face-down into the stock.

Allowed moves

Scoring

For each card moved from the reserve to the tableau, you get 5 points. For each card moved to the foundation (from the tableau or from the reserve) you get 10 points. Moving a card from the foundation back to the tableau will cost you 15 points. This scoring is based on the old Solitaire Masters version of Algerian Patience.

FAQ

How to win at Algerian Patience?

The goal in Algerian Patience is to move all cards to the foundation. To achieve this you need a good strategy. Immediately move cards to the foundation when possible. Try to create empty spaces in the tableau and try to keep an empty space in the tableau so you can move cards around. You can lift the cards in the reserve to check which card is underneath. If you are stuck, use the undo button to go back.

How is Algerian Patience scored?

You earn points when moving a card to the foundation (10 points), and also when bringing a card into the game by moving it from the reserve to the tableau (5 points). You will get a penalty (-15 points) if you move a card from the foundation back to the tableau.
