There are four different types of stacks in klondike solitaire. They are:
After gold was found in Rabbit Creek in north-western Canada in 1896, the Klondike stampede saw an estimated 100,000 prospectors trying to reach the gold fields.
Only around 40,000 actually did, and only 4000 of those managed to get some gold.
Boom towns appeared along the route to accommodate the prospectors. Dawson City was founded where the Klondike and the Yukon River meet. In 1896 it housed 500 residents. By the summer of 1898 there were 30,000.
The rush for gold was ended in 1899 when prospectors moved on to the next big thing at Nome, Alaska. When the first census was taken in 1901 the population had declined to 9,000.

How to play Klondike
Turn cards from the draw pile over one at a time.
As they become available, the four aces can be played onto the foundations.
Cards of the same suit may be played on each ace in ascending order, from low (2) to high (king).
On the tableau, cards are played in descending order, alternating colors.
If a column in the tableau is emptied, any visible king can be moved to fill that space.
