The objective of this patience-themed game is to move all the cards to the four designated slots according to their suits in ascending order, from Ace to King.

When the game begins, each of the seven columns on the board is dealt four face-up cards. The four slots are located above the columns. A card is dealt to the discard pile to the left of the slots, and the remaining cards are placed face down to the left of the discard pile, forming the draw pile. The cards on the columns ought to be stacked by suit in descending order.

Features:
  • You can move a set of cards from one column to another if the move connects a card to another card of an immediately higher rank and of the same suit. For instance, a set that begins with a 7 of spades can be moved onto an 8 of spades in a different column. The other cards in the set can be of any color and sequence.
  • Only a King can be moved to an empty column.
  • You earn 100 points for each card moved to a slot.
  • You can click on the draw pile to deal a new card, however, note that no redealing is allowed.

The game ends when the draw pile is exhausted and no other move can be made. Use your draw pile wisely and win the game quickly to earn even more bonus points! 'Australian Patience' is a thought-provoking and strategic game ready to provide hours of entertainment.
