Seven Up is a solitaire card game which is played with a deck of 52 playing cards. The game is so called because the aim of the game is to eliminate cards in groups that total a multiple of seven (7, 14, 21, 28, 35, etc.). This game belongs to a family of value-adding row games which includes Decade.

In this game, the cards are dealt in a row. Spot cards (cards that value from ace to ten) are taken at face value, while jacks are valued at eleven, queens at twelve, and kings at thirteen. Groups of any number of cards that are next to each other and total to a multiple of seven can be discarded. A seven can be discarded on its own.

The game is won when all cards have been discarded. The game is lost if all cards have been dealt from the deck, no more matches are possible and cards are left on the row.
