Forty Thieves Solitaire


Play a challenging game of patience also known as Big Forty. The legend goes that Napoleon Bonapart used to spand over this card solitaire game during his exile at St Helena. It requires both skill and luck to complete. The aim is to play two decks onto the eight foundations up the suit, from Ace to King. Flip the cards from the stack in the top right, place them onto the foundations or the tableau stacks. The latter are built down the suit from King to Ace. In the Hard mode, you can only move one card between the tableau stacks, and in the Easy mode you can move a sequence of cards. As 40 Thieves is considered one o the most difficullt card solitaire games, we recommend you to start from the Easy mode.
