At the start of the game, each player receives a shuffled deck of 52 cards. 12 of these cards are dealt in a pile face down with a 13th card face up on top of it. This pile is called the "reserve deck".
From the deck of each player, 4 cards are placed face up in a column above the reserve. These four cards are known as the "houses". Between the two columns of houses, room is left for 8 "foundation piles".
Each player will have 35 cards left over which are placed face down next to the reserve pile. This pile becomes their "hand". Next to their hand is room for their "waste" pile.
The object of the game is to get rid of all the cards in your reserve, hand, and waste piles by either playing them to the houses, the foundation piles, or loading them on your opponents reserve or waste piles.
Players take alternate turns. A turn consist of moving cards around according to strict "building rules". Each move consists of taking one "available card" and playing it by placing it onto a house, a foundation pile, or your opponents reserve or waste pile. A player ends his/her turn by moving the top card of their hand to their waste pile.
- An empty foundation pile can only be filled with an ace. The foundation is then build up using cards from the same suit
in ascending order: A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K.
- On any of the eight houses the cards are build in descending order with alternating colors. So a black Ten can be placed
on a red Jack.
- The reserve and waste piles of your opponent can be loaded with cards of the same suit as the current top card. The rank
of the new card must be one higher or lower than the current rank. Zo on a Seven of Diamonds you can place a Six or an Eight of Diamonds.
- The top card on your reserve pile.
- The outermost card of one of the eight houses.
- The top card on your hand pile. You may only turn this card over when there are no more "compulsory moves" to be made.
- If your top reserve card can be played to a foundation pile you must do so.
- When an available card can be played to a foundation pile you must do so.
- If your reserve is not empty and there are empty houses, you must fill the empty houses before turning your hand card.
In order to speed up play you can play stacks of cards from one house to another if you have enough empty houses to make
the move card-by-card.
The winner of the game receives:
- 2 points for every card left in your opponents reserve pile
- 1 point for every card left in your opponents hand or waste pile
- 30 bonus points for winning the game
A stalemate is reached when both players have gone through their entire hand without playing any hand or reserve cards.
In this case, the player with the least penalty points (as explained above, without bonus points) receives the difference
The first player to reach 150 points wins the match.
Block your opponent to slow them down and win by playing all the cards from your own pile before your opponent does.
The new multi-player feature allows you to play with anyone on the net or invite your friends to play with you.

As each Ace becomes available it may be transferred to a row above the tableau to start one of the four foundations. The foundations are built up in ascending suit sequence to the King. The exposed card of a tableau column may be transferred to a foundation of the same suit if it follows the ascending sequence or to the exposed card of another column if it forms a descending sequence of alternating colors, e.g. 6 red on 7 black or Q red on K black.

Cards are distributed with 7 rows in the shape of stairs, upside down, and only each card in the lowest positon of the rows faces front.
Rest of the cards not in the rows are stuck together and put on the table.
The stucked cards can be turned over whenever the player wants to do so. In this game, players can choose whether they do "1mode", as turning 1 card at a each time, or "3mode", as turning 3 cards each time.
On the tableau, there are four space for building cards (foundation). You place the cards on each foundation in ascending sequence from A to K, each foundation being the same color.
Cards on the tableau can be piled in a descending sequence from K to A. At this time, cards should be piled in alternating colors, i.e. black (spade/club) and red (heart/diamond).
Only K can be placed on a vacant column. Cards of other numbers cannot be placed there.
In the top-left, there's the deck. When you click the top card, three top cards are taken off and placed face-up next to the deck. You can drag these onto another stack. By clicking the deck again, new cards are revealed and this continues until the deck runs out. Another click will turn over the pile of open cards to form a new deck.
The four empty slots on the top-right are the stacks where you want all the cards to be in the end. These stacks need to be sorted from low to high (starting with the Ace), with one stack for every suit. You win the game when all four stacks are completed with their respective King.

Test it with this FREE lite version!
This is a 'double' solitaire game like no other!
Important note: Klondike Battle is based on ‘Russian Bank’ and has different rules to begin with.
First of all you play head-to-head against an opponent (human or computer) to determine who the best is! You are constantly trying to play your cards strategically onto the playing field, which you share with your opponent. The smarter player can increase its winning chances, by carefully checking all possibilities and making the better moves. In the classic solitaire game, you challenge yourself, but in Klondike Battle you challenge your opponent.
Secondly the game Klondike Battle has a great game pace whilst you also play against the clock. Who makes better choices in the time given? Is it you? The time is literally ticking against you, while you try to solve the best possible move! No more waiting for slower players, it keeps the pace going!
And last but not least, you can pound your opponent mental state with cards you cannot play to the playing board and give yourself the advantage in the game! Your opponent will not appreciate this, resulting in hilarious sounds of annoyance.
This game is timeless and I think once you’ve mastered the game you will love it! Take your time, this game will stick with you through the years, I know it does!
