Playing a game of gold mine

FreeCell

  • http://politaire.com/help/freecell

  • The goal is to move all the cards to the foundation.

  • The cards need to be sent to the foundation in ascending order (ace, 2, 3, etc) in stacks of the same suit.
  • Any card can be sent to one of the four cells available (top-left).
  • A cell can only hold one card at a time.
  • All cards are dealt into the tableau in eight piles.
  • Cards can be combined in the tableau in descending order, and off opposite color.
  • Empty spaces in the tableau can receive any card.

Gold Mine

You can read about the game here http://politaire.com/help/goldmine.

  • The game starts with all the cards in the stock (top left).
  • Clicking on the stock moves 3 cards to the waste (element next to the stock).
  • You can then move the last card there to either the tableau of the foundation.
  • There's only one pass through the stock, so you need to keep combining the cards until you move through all the cards available.
  • You can move any card to an empty tableau (bottom), or move to a stack there if a card is of alternating color and one value lower.
  • The goal of the game is to move all the cards to the foundation (top right).
  • A card may be moved to a foundation is its either an ace, or a card of the same suit with one higher value.
  • So basically, keep combining the cards in the tableau (bottom), try not to use all the available empty tableaus (they are useful to make the combinations).
  • As possible, you need to keep filling the foundation as well, starting with the ace and going from there.
  • If you manage to move all the cards to the foundation (four stacks from ace to king) then you'll win the game.

  • The goal is to move all the cards to the foundation.
