Eight Off Solitaire
1 deck. Easy. No redeal.
Eight Off Solitaire uses 52 cards. 48 cards are dealt into 8 tableau piles. Eight cells (reserves) are placed above the tableau piles. At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to each of the 4 cells on the left. Four foundation piles are placed to the right of tableaus.
Aces are moved to the foundations as they become available.
The top cards of tableau piles and cards from cells are available to play. You may build tableau piles down in suit. Only one card at a time can be moved. The top card of any tableau pile can also be moved to any cell. Each cell may contain only one card. Cards in the cells can be moved to the foundation piles or back to the tableau piles, if possible.
The rules state that you can move only one card at a time. But as a shortcut, BVS Solitaire will allow you to move a full or partial build if there are enough empty tableau and empty cells, because you would have been able to get the same result by temporarily moving the extra cards into the empty tableaus.
Eight Off Solitaire is one of the games included into the BVS Solitaire Collection.
