PCHgames Addiction Solitaire Tournament Rules1. How to Play Addiction Solitaire
After the deal, the aces are removed to create four blank positions. Move an orange highlighted card into one of these blank positions until all of the cards have been placed from 2 to King. One card can fill a blank position -- it has to be one higher in value and from the same suit as the card to the left of the empty position. Three reshuffles are allowed when you get stuck. Remember, empty positions after Kings can not be filled.
