Crescent Solitaire

Game Description: Try to move all cards from the outer ring to the center.

How to Play Crescent Solitaire:

  • There are 2 foundation rows for each suit in the center.
  • Build the top center row for each suit in descending order: K,Q,J,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,A.
  • Build the bottom center row for each suit in ascending order: A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K.
  • Only the topmost card in each pile can be moved.
  • Move cards one at a time by dragging them with your mouse.
  • Cards from the outer piles may be moved to the center if they are of the same suit and in the correct sequence.
  • Cards from the outer piles may also be moved onto another outer pile if they are of the same suit and in ascending or descending order. For example, a 7 of clubs may be placed onto either a 6 of clubs or an 8 of clubs.
  • Cards from the center cannot be moved to the outer piles.
  • Play continues until no further moves are possible, then the piles are shuffled.
  • You have a maximum of 3 shuffles per game.

Crescent Solitaire Playing Tips:
  • If you get stuck use the Hint button. You are allowed 5 hints per game.
  • The game will always tell you how many moves you have available. Watch for this.
  • Take a sneak peek! You may pull a card off of a pile and take a peek to see the card underneath. (Just hold unto it with your mouse while you are peeking.) If you feel the move is to your advantage complete the move by moving the card unto an eligible pile. If you change your mind put the card back from where it came. Remember, once you complete a move by releasing your mouse it cannot be undone.
  • A card may be moved from the top center row to the bottom center row, or vice versa, when the cards are in the correct sequence. For example, if the top center row has K,Q, J, and 10 of clubs and the bottom center row has A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9 of clubs... then the 10 of clubs from the top row may be moved from the top row to the bottom row. You may want to do this if the other jack of clubs (there are 2 of every card) is available for play from one of the outer piles.

Richard's Rating: 4 out of 5.

Pro: Crescent Solitaire is a pleasant and relaxing game. There is no time limit, which I appreciate. It is certainly challenging though, and I have yet to win. But it is certainly fun to try.

Con: None.
