Beleaguered Castle Rules

An open-style game requiring planning and skill.
Also known as Laying Siege, and Sham Battle.

Beleaguered Castle Terms


General Rules

Uses 1 pack of cards.

The four Aces are automatically placed on the Foundation Piles.


How to Win

The game is won when each Foundation Pile shows a King:


Building the Foundations

Only 1 card at a time may be played to (or from) a Foundation Pile.

Build each Foundation Pile in ascending value from Ace to King, with all cards in a Pile sharing the same suit.


Building the Tableau Stacks

The Tableau Stacks are used to manage and store cards, before they are eventually moved to the Foundations.

Only 1 card can be moved at a time.

Build each Stack in descending value, regardless of suit.

Any front-most card may be placed on an empty Stack.


Hints & Tips

Try to create empty Tableau Stacks as soon possible.
