If you want to enjoy a family Solitaire game, then Eight Off is the one to have fun playing.
The game comprises of one deck of 52 playing cards. The suit and ranks of the map are equally important.
The goal of the game is to create all four suits present in the foundations in the following order – Ace to King
How to Play Eight Off Solitaire
- To start the game, all 52 cards from the standard deck are placed face-up. A stack of 6 cards is placed in each of the eight columns present in the tableau. The rest of the four cards are placed into four cells towards the left in the free cell section.
- You can move a card back & forth through the tableau as well as the free cell section. You can quickly move any single ticket to the empty open cell.
- One of the essential rules of this game is when any column becomes empty, it can be filled using a King of any suit.
- The King can come from the bottom card in the stack or free cell area. Other cards (non-King) can be shifted to a vacant column.
- When you move a King from the free cell to a tableau, it is allowed to be arranged into an empty column. For a card (non-King), it can be shifted to the bottom-most card in a stack which is next in the rank and belong to the same suit.
- For instance, 4 of Spades can be shifted from a free cell to 5 of Spades right at the bottom of the pile.
- Also, you can move a card from a free cell or the bottom of any pile into the foundation if it is an Ace that starts a suit build, or is next in rank for own costume, which widens the build. You can shift a card through the foundation to a free cell or a tableau.
- The suited run comprises consecutive cards located anywhere in any pile, which are of the same suit and with rank at the bottom.
- For instance, from bottom up, the 2 of Diamonds, 3 of Diamonds, and 4 of Diamonds make a 3-card suited run. Thus, one card is ideally 1-card suited run.
- If the free cells are empty in sufficient numbers, a suited run of on card or more can be shifted once for all from pile to different pile. It is considered as a single move only.
