OVERVIEW OF YUKON SOLITAIRE
Yukon Solitaire is similar to Klondike Solitaire with the exception of the ability to move groups of cards even if they are in a incorrect sequence. As long as the column moved forms a descending sequence with alternating colors, it is considered to be a valid move.
Another noticeable difference is all of the cards are dealt out, leaving no stock to draw from. This game is slightly easier and slightly less secretive, as you know what you are working with.
After shuffling the cards well, twenty-eight cards are organized in the same way as Klondike solitaire to begin the seven columns. The other cards are dealt facing up to the final six columns and the game begins!
Any card that is faceup, no matter where it is located in a column, may be relocated in order to create a descending sequence of alternating colors. All of the covering cards are moved along with it whether or not they are in proper order.
When an ace becomes useable, it may be moved to one of the four foundations found to the right of the card columns. The foundations are then completed in proper order, with the same suit, leading up to King. It is important for facedown cards to be exposed so that they may immediately be used.
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when all four foundations are built in the correct ascending order. There is no declared winner.
