Solitaire card is a game of smartness and patience, as its second name implies. To finish well, you need to have the best knowledge of the rules and moves.

Players of solitaires will need 52-card deck but must use jokers. To declare the game open, the cards will be shuffled, and seven heaps will be spread out all over the table. Each heap starts with a card that is turned upside down and from one end to the other, the piles keep decreasing by one card each.


The objective of Solitaire is to form a pile of cards beginning with double and finishing with a king card that have similar suit. When that hurdle has been successfully crossed, next stop is to transfer it to the base which houses the former Ace in that suit. After the gamer must have finished this task, the suit will be completed, and s/he will win the game by rounding up all suits. Now to the main subject of minimum moves. For the least number of moves needed to round up solitaire, two situations must be considered.


First, you need to know there are two types of deals, 1-deal that needs 76 moves and 3-deal that requires 60 moves.


Secondly, in the case of 3-deal with 60 moves, a card meant for each card is meant to shift into the Bases (Foundations) and small spill-over for deck dealing.


Below is the equation for both 1-deal and 3-deal number of moves.


Seven heaps of cards are lying on the table, four heaps consist of A's while the other 3 contain 2s. You can then place the Aces down then you can form 2s in four cards and 3s in two cards.


When this system is maintained, you can have a deal which the 28 cards beneath the pile would have likely been shifted to the Foundations.


In 1-deal, it's compulsory to have a deal which must take care of the proper arrangement of the left-over 24 cards. In this case, you will need to move 24 more cards in order to reveal every single card, which means that you have 24 more cards to be placed and shifted into the Foundation. The sum of every moves equals to 76; 28+24x2=76.


On the other hand, when you play 3-deal, every family of 3s must be arranged backward according to their order of moves, however, a seemingly pack of card may still be there where you can shift cards one after the other, adding up to the Foundations. Therefore, a move will reveal 3 cards, and all you have to do is to take cards from the pack in 8 separate times, then add all the cards one by one into the Foundation for a summed of number of 60, i.e. -28+8+24=60.


Having the right information about solitaire is the best way to become a pro. But don't forget to the rules and moves. Regardless of what deals you are playing, 1-deal or 3-deal, just stick to the moves and enjoy a flawless game.
