Klondike Solitaire – What It Is & How to Play

Klondike Solitaire – What It Is & How to Play

Are you guys of the Solitaire card game generation? Originally known as “Patience,” Solitaire has a long and popular history. It actually dates back to the mid-18th century, and since then, just about everyone has played some form of it. PCH’s digital version, Klondike Solitaire, is a modern spin on the old classic and is one of PCH’s most popular games (not to mention you could win CASH PRIZES). But there are still people who haven’t tried it. So… I thought it would be a good idea to go over how to play Klondike Solitaire – this way, those who haven’t played yet can stop missing out on all the fabulous fun!

How To Play Klondike Solitaire

Have you guys played yet? Do you love it? For those who haven’t, Klondike Solitaire is basically just a digital version of the old-fashioned card game. If you’re ready to have a great time, just go to PCHgames, sign up and go for it! This is how to play:

Drag and drop cards to create stacks in descending order from King to 2 using alternating colors. Uncover all four aces and place them in the reserved spots at the top of the game board. To win, you must remove all the cards from your playing piles and stack same suits in ascending order from 2 to King on the four piles of Aces. Cards are dealt from the deck in groups of three, and only the top-most card on the flip pile may be played at any given time. When the end of the deck has been reached the entire deck is flipped over and re-dealt three cards at a time.

This You Need To Know

One of the best things about Klondike Solitaire, and all PCH games for that matter, is that you can play from just about anywhere … for FREE! You can play at home on your desktop or on the go on any of your devices. So, it’s super convenient (not to mention a fantastic boredom crusher). AND there are plenty of ways you can win CASH! You didn’t think PCH would forget about winning money, did you? Of course not! Like I mentioned earlier, tournament winners can take home CASH PRIZES! Also, after you’ve played your first game of the day, you’ll be entered to win $1,000,000.00 – and any 10 games unlocks the $500.00 instant-win bonus game! PLUS… (yes there’s more) for all you token-lovers out there – you can score TONS OF TOKENS! Who out there loves tokens?


Some Helpful Tips

What most people don’t realize is that skill also plays a factor in winning Klondike Solitaire – not just the luck of the draw. There are things you can do to improve your odds of winning. And here’s a fun fact for you: There are more than 7 Trillion possible hands capable of being dealt in Klondike Solitaire. That’s a lot of opportunities to win! Here are some tips that may give you an edge:

  • Always flip the first card from the deck before making any other moves. It increases the initial number of possible moves.
  • Always move an Ace or Deuce to the foundation whenever possible.
  • Expose hidden cards. If you have a choice of several moves that expose hidden cards, choose the column with the largest number of hidden cards.
