Clock Solitaire

This is a variation on the game of solitaire -- it takes the form of a clock.

Materials

  • Pack of cards (without the Joker)
Directions
  1. Shuffle the cards and then deal out twelve cards face down in a circle like a clock.
  2. Place one card in the center.
  3. Deal another twelve cards on top of the first ones and place the next card in the center.
  4. Repeat.
  5. Deal another twelve cards, but keep the spare card.
  6. Turn this card up and place it under the hour of the clock it represents.
  7. Jack is eleven and Queen is twelve.
  8. Take a card from the top of that pile and place it where it belongs.
  9. If you pick a King, you place it under the center pile.
  10. Continue until there are four Kings in the center, and therefore, no more cards to place on the clock.
  11. To win you must have all the cards face up on the clock.
Note: Playing cards originated many hundreds of years ago in both China and Europe. Some of today's card games are over 600 years old!
