Penguin Rules

A fun, interesting mix of Freecell and Canfield

Penguin Terms

 

General Rules

Uses 1 pack of cards.

A Cell provides temporary storage for any single card.

Seven Cells are available, these are known as the Flipper.

A card can be played from a Cell to either the Tableau or Foundations.

The number of "free" Cells determines how many Tableau cards can be moved as a group.

 

Building the Foundations

Only 1 card at a time may be played to a Foundation Pile.

At the start, a random card value (the "Beak") is chosen and three cards with that value are automatically placed on the Foundations.

The Beak's value determines what card can be placed on the final, empty Foundation Pile.

The trick is that the final Beak card is buried deep in the Tableau Stacks!

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

Aces can be placed on Kings if they share the same suit.

 

How to Win

The game is won when each Foundation Pile contains 13 cards of 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.

Build each Stack in descending value and same suit:

Kings can be placed on Aces if they share the same suit:

Only the front-most card of a Stack, or the front-most valid group of cards can be moved. A valid group is an unbroken sequence of cards in descending value and same suit.

The number of cards that can be moved as a group depends on the number of free Cells. You can move one card plus the number of free Cells.

For example, if there are two free Cells, then up to three Tableau cards can be moved as a group. (As long those three cards build down in value and same suit.)

A card can be moved to an empty Stack if its value is one less than the Beak.

If the Beak is an Ace, then a King can be moved to an empty Stack.

 

Hints & Tips

Try to keep as many Cells free (empty) as possible.

Try to uncover the remaining Beak card in the Tableau as soon as possible. It's the first card placed in the Tableau Stacks.
