RULES AND FEATURES
Regular visitors to the solitaire section of our online rating are already used to the diversity of genres found in some games. This solitaire game is one of those that mixes a semi-spider layout with loose rules for moving cards between piles and with the Klondike Solitaire task. If you combine all the elements of the layout and layout rules, as well as impose the main task on the process, you can safely call this solitaire game Chinese Klondike Solitaire.
The layout uses the traditional 52-sheet deck for this type of card game. Its initial layout is incomplete: 49 cards in seven columns of 7 each on the table and the remainder of 3 cards in the deck. Please note that unlike the classic Kerchiefs, here already at the stage of distribution there are 7 cards in each column. The klondike formation itself is formed in them exclusively by open cards. That is, in each of the three left columns all 7 cards are open, in the fourth — 4, in the fifth-3, in the sixth-2 and in the seventh column only one top card is open. The four base cells are located on the left. These are the places where you need to put the cards you want to analyze.
As mentioned above, moving cards and their groups between sorting columns is not strict, but alternating suits, as in the classic, is still required. That is, only the red six can be shifted to the black seven, but if there is a group of cards above this six, it doesn't matter if it is sorted in descending order or not — shifting is possible in any case. This, of course, makes the task easier. But despite such indulgences for the player, observation and the ability to calculate the game several steps ahead play a huge role in Chinese solitaire. In combination with the missing Undo button (you can't undo the previous move!), this approach comes to the fore.
Traditionally, try to get to the aces first, then dig out of the card mass of twos, threes, and so on. It is advisable to pay special attention to the closed cards in the columns. You should try to open them as quickly as possible. This is done by moving individual cards and their groups between columns.
As in any other Klondike Solitaire, the main task is to store cards sorted by suit and ascending rank in the base cells. To the difficulties and limitations described above, you should also add time, which tends to flow away quite quickly. At the first level (and there are only 10 of them here!) of the game, the solitaire developers allocate you only 9 minutes and 45 seconds. For professionals, this time is enough, although you will first have to get used to the conditions of the changed configuration. Beginners should try to act in stages, mastering the methods of optimal map placement and setting themselves a specific task, for example, to dig out the required map from the mass.
