The goal in Ronin Solitaire is to move all cards to the foundations, creating four piles of the same suit in ascending order.
Layout & deal
First, one card is dealt to the first foundation. Then 13 cards are dealt to the reserve pile on the left, all face-up unlike Canfield solitaire in which the cards in the reserve are face-down. Finally, each of the four foundation piles is dealt one card.
The rank of the card dealt to the first foundation determines the starting rank of the foundation piles. All other piles have to start with a card of this rank as well.
The tableau piles are built in descending order, by alternating color (black on red, red on black). Only one card at a time can be moved between tableau piles. Cards cannot be moved between tableau piles.
Turn the stock to reveal three more cards at a time. Once you circle through the stock, you can reset it as many times as you want.
If you get stuck, you can press the undo button to go back as many moves as you want.
Unlike in the regular Canfield solitaire game, you have the option of shuffling the deck when you get stuck. This can only be done three times per game.
You start a new deal with a score of -50. If you move a card to the foundations, you earn 5 points. Shuffling the deck will cost you 30 points.
The game keeps track of your score across all games you played. You can see both your score for the current game and your overall score across all games on the left of the tableau.
Click and drag a card to move it to another pile. Double clicking a card will move it to the foundation if it is a valid move.
The name of this game is related with the Japanese samurai culture. This is also why the theme of this game is inspired by samurais. From the 12th to the 19th century, a ronin was a samurai without a master. You have to gather points to restore all the samurai privileges of the ronin.
