Scorpion solitaire is a patience game using a deck of 52 playing cards. The method of game play is similar to Yukon and Spider solitaire.
The object of Scorpion solitaire is to form four columns of cards in suit sequence from king down to ace.
The game starts with forty nine cards that are dealt into seven columns of seven cards each on the tableau. The first four columns each have three face-down cards with four face-up cards placed over them. The cards in the remaining three columns are all face up. The three leftover cards are set aside for later.
Cards in the tableau are built down by suit and every face up card is available for play, no matter where in the column it is. That means that any card can be placed on top of a card that is a rank higher. Once a card from the bottom or middle of a column is moved, all cards on top of it are moved as well, as one unit. Nothing can be placed on an ace and gaps on the tableau can only be taken by kings or sequences with Kings as their top cards.
At any time you like, you can click on the stack in the top left representing the tail of scorpion. This will deal the three leftover cards onto the first three columns and hopefully give you an opportunity to advance the game.
When a column is built successfully it is moved onto the foundation in the top right.
You win Scorpion solitaire by making four full sets.
