This is the usual Solitaire card game. Also known as Patience Klondike or Windows Solitaire.
Taking a shuffled standard 52-card deck of playing cards (without Jokers), one upturned card is dealt on the left of the playing area, then six downturned cards (from left to right). On top of the downturned cards, an upturned card is dealt on the left-most downturned pile, and downturned cards on the rest until all piles have an upturned card. The piles should look like the figure to the right.
The four foundations (light rectangles in the upper right of the figure) are built up by suit from Ace (low in this game) to King, and the tableau piles can be built down by alternate colors, and partial or complete piles can be moved if they are built down by alternate colors also. Any empty piles can be filled with a King or a pile of cards with a King. The point of the game is to build up a stack of cards starting with 2 and ending with King, all of the same suit. Once this is accomplished, the goal is to move this to a foundation, where the player has previously placed the Ace of that suit. Once the player has done this, they will have "finished" that suit- the goal being, of course, to finish all suits, at which time the player will have won.

Ratings and Reviews
Works pretty well except a big negative - a prompt line appears underneath the destination card whenever there is a possible move. So basically the game is telling you every move and there is no challenge. Renders game useless. And there is no way in the Settings to remove this feature.
So Far, So Good
After reading the few reviews, I was hesitant, but decided to give it a try. So far, I’m liking it (not as good as the app I have on iphone/ipads but still doing most of what I want). Choice of 3 or 1 draw and a few other settings. I find the cards to be a good size — hubby has macular so the cards must be a good size. The cards go automatically where they should after clicking on ‘em, except for playing on the pack sometimes as I guess they feel there might be a choice which position you might want to put the card. And if you click on an ace after it’s turned over, it should go automataically to the correct spot, not down on the row of cards — strange that this hasn’t been corrected.
This game won't open, "quits unexpectedly," is a waste of 99 cents! Should be REMOVED from Apple's selection of games, or debugged if possible and a revision sent to buyers. Please refund my 99 cents (and 7-cent purchasing fee). Thanks.
