To play “Klondike,” visit the official World of Solitaire website, hover the mouse over the Solitaire menu, select Choose Game, and then click on “Klondike” to open the game. Use the mouse to interact with the game.

“Klondike” uses a standard 52-card deck without the Jokers, and seven piles of cards lay in a horizontal line in front of the player. Each of these piles starts with one face-up card. Each pile contains one more card than the next, starting from left to right. The first pile contains only one face-up card. The second pile contains two cards, one that faces up, and one that faces down. This pattern continues for all seven piles.

The goal is to move all of the cards into the four foundations directly above the seven piles, and each foundation hosts one suit. For example, one foundation contains hearts, while each of the others contain clubs, spades or diamonds. Players must start with the ace as the first card in each foundation, and work up in rank to the king of that suit.

There are two versions of “Klondike” from which players can choose: draw one card and draw three cards. Around 79 percent of the games in the draw-three version are winnable. However, the odds of winning decreases as players make the wrong moves throughout the game.
