Sultan Solitaire is a variant of Freecell, and is very similar to Emperor Solitaire. In this game the reserve piles initially have cards dealt into them. Sultan Solitaire is played with 2 decks, and starts out with the foundations containing the 8 kings and the Ace of Hearts. The player must sort the cards into the foundations by suit and in order from King - Queen wrapping from King to Ace. The King of Hearts in the center of the Foundations can not have a card placed on it. To win the game the player must have built up the foundations so that a circle of Queens surrounds the king in the center to form a sultan and his Harem. Cards can be moved from the reserve piles, or can be dealt by clicking on the deck on the left side of the game screen.
How to play Sultan Solitaire
Sultan Solitaire is a solitaire card game played with 2 decks. The game starts with the 8 Kings and the Ace of Hearts being dealt into 8 foundations with the King of Hearts in the center. The 9 cards are dealt out in 3 rows. The top row is King of Spades, Ace of Hearts, King of Spades. The middle row is King of Diamonds, King of Hearts, King of Diamonds. The bottom row in King of Clubs, King of Hearts, King of Clubs. The King of hearts in the center is the Sultan, and not a foundation. No cards may be placed on top of the Sultan.
To the Right and The left of the foundations are four reserve piles, which can hold one card each. In traditional Sultan Solitaire, these reserve piles are initially filled with 8 cards dealt from the deck. In Quick Sultan Solitaire and Pro Sultan Solitaire, these reserve piles are left empty.
The player's goal is to build the 8 foundations up in suit from King (or Ace) to Queen, wrapping from King to Ace where necessary. The player wins when the Sultan is surrounded by his 8 queens.
