This article is about the game Alaska. To know more about the state, see the Alaska article.

Alaska is a solitaire game using one deck of playing cards, and is quite similar to the game "Yukon". It is said to be more difficult than "Yukon" due to the difference in Tableau building. The object of the game is to move all cards to the Foundations.

Layout[edit]

Alaska has four Foundations that build up from Ace to King in suit.

Here is an example: A, 2, 3, 4...

The game includes seven Tableau Stacks.

Rules[edit]

The cards in the Tableau build up or down in suit.

Here is an example: 6♠, 7♠, 8♠, 9♠... OR 5♠, 4♠, 3♠, 2♠...

Any faced-up card can be moved, even if there are other unrelated cards on top of it. Only Kings can fill empty spaces in the Tableau. The game is won after all cards have been moved to the Foundations.
