The initial layout of the game of Yukon.
The legal move in Yukon: any face up card is available for play (as indicated by the darkened card) and is moved along with the cards on top of it.

Yukon is a version of solitaire similar to standard Klondike solitaire, but with the following additions:

  • Groups of cards can be moved; the cards below the one to be moved do not need to be in any order, except that the starting and target cards must be built in sequence and in alternate color. For example, a group starting with a Red 3 can be moved on top a Black 4, and the cards below the Red 3 can differ.
  • There is no stock in Yukon. All cards are dealt at the beginning; however, some are face down.


  • Russian Solitaire is also a solitaire card game which is very similar in layout and gameplay as Yukon. Its difference with Yukon lies in the fact that building is by suit.
