Double Or Quits Solitaire
HOW TO PLAY
Double or Quits is a solitaire card game using a deck of 52 playing cards. The game is so called because the cards are built in a pattern where the value doubles and decreases by 13 if necessary.
The game starts with eight cards dealt in a 3x3 grid with a hollow center. The middle card of the bottom row becomes the foundation and all other cards form the reserve. The illustration below shows the layout:
The foundation is built regardless of
suit using a sequence in which the value doubles:
A-2-4-8-3-6-Q-J-9-5-10-7-A-2, etc. For instance, if the card on
the foundation is a 4, an 8 should be placed over it. Cards in the
reserve are available for play and any gaps on the reserve are
immediately filled by cards from the wastepile, or from the stock in
case the wastepile is empty.
