Try to untangle the braid with thoughtful strategies.
Version: 1.0.3Using 2 decks of standard playing cards, Braid Solitaire is a mysterious card game that requires careful planning. Your goal in this game is to move all cards to the 8 foundations.
Operating System: Windows
When the game starts, 20 face-up cards will be dealt to the vertical braid in the middle of the screen. 2 reserve columns are located on the two sides of the braid, with each column containing 2 reserve piles marked with a braid icon, and each of the reserve piles will be dealt 1 face-up card.
A tableau column is located next to each reserve column, with each column containing 4 tableau piles, and each of the tableau piles will be dealt 1 face-up card. 4 foundations are located next to each tableau column, and 1 face-up card will be dealt to the top foundation on the left as the starting rank.
The remaining cards will be placed face-down to the stock pile under the tableau column on the left, and 1 face-up card will be dealt to the discard pile on the right of the stock pile.
You can determine whether the foundations should be built up or down by suit, for example, if the starting rank of the foundations is 5, you can move a 4 or 6 onto the foundations.
Each time you can move a card on a tableau pile, a reserve pile, the discard pile or the bottom of the braid to the foundation. Note that the cards on the braid can only be moved to the foundations or the reserve piles, while the cards on the reserve piles can only be moved to the foundations.
When a tableau pile becomes empty, you can move the card on the discard pile to fill the space. When a reserve pile becomes empty, you can move the bottom card on the braid to fill the space. The stock pile allows 3 redeals. How quickly can you solve this complex card puzzle?
