Triple Klondike

Triple Klondike

Triple Klondike is a three deck variation of the standard seven pile solitaire game Klondike.

Triple Klondike looks and feels like regular Klondike. Instead of seven piles in the tableau, there are 13 piles. The cards are dealt out as in Klondike, one card to the first pile, two cards to the 2nd pile, and so on, until 13 cards are dealt out to the 13th pile. Only the top card is face up.

The remainder of the cards form a stock, which will be turned over to a waste pile 3 cards at a time. There are unlimited redeals.

There are 12 foundation piles, three for each suit, with each pile built up in suit from Ace to King. The object of the game is to move all of the cards to these piles.

The 13 tableau piles are built down by alternate color. Empty spaces in the tableau may only be filled by a King or a group of cards headed by a King. General play goes exactly as in the one deck Klondike.

Triple Klondike can be won pretty much every time by good players. Average players can win 80-90% of the time. Triple Klondike can be a nice change of pace from the one deck Klondike, as the increased number of cards makes the game more complex and also gives more choices to the player.

Triple Klondike is one of the 500 games in Pretty Good Solitaire.
