OVERVIEW OF TERRACE SOLITAIRE
Terrace Solitaire is the perfect pass time. It is a two deck solitaire game, which makes it slightly more difficult than the typical solitaire game. With strategic and slow moves, it is easy to complete the foundations.
To begin setup, specify where the 8 foundations will be placed. A reserve pile of twelve cards will be created to the side. After the 12 cards have been removed, 3 cards may be dealt to the 9 columns. The player then has to choose a beginning card in the foundation from the three cards.
The game is ready to begin.
The first card in all foundations must have the same value as the chosen card. The player may move the top card from one column to another. The player may build the cards down or up alternating the colors.
The player may also move the top card on the reserve pile. The cards are placed in the waste pile one at a time. The player may use the top card in the waste pile when building foundations and the columns.
The goal is to have all of the cards into the foundations in the correct order and color.
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when a player is able to place all of the cards into the foundations or there are no other moves that can be made. If all of the cards have been placed, the player wins the game!
