Four Seasons

Layout. Deal five cards face up in the form of a cross, forming the tableau. Deal the next card into one of the corner spaces, as the first foundation.
Foundations. The other three cards of same rank as the foundation are moved to the other corner spaces as they become available.  The foundations are built up in suit until each pile is 13 cards, aces following kings.
Tableau.  Tableau cards may be built on each other, downward, regardless of suit.  Only one card at a time may be moved from the top of a pile.  Spaces may be filled by available cards from the tableau, the waste pile, or the hand.  Top cards stud of tableau piles are available for play on foundations.
Waste Pile.  Turn cards up from the hand one by one, placing unplayable cards face up on a single waste pile.  The top card of the pile, as well as the card in hand, is available for play on foundations or the tableau.

Simplicity

This poker variation of Four Seasons was probably invented to give emotional relief to frustrated devotees of Four Seasons.  Follow all rules of Four Seasons except that, for the tableau, deal two rows of six cards each.  Deal the next card in a row above for the first foundation.  On the tableau, build down in alternating colors.

Fortune’s Favor

            Foundations.  Remove the four aces from the pack and put them in a row, to be built in suit to kings.
            Tableau.  Below the aces, deal two rows of six cards each for the tableau.  These cards may be built on each other, down, in suit; but only one  card at a time can be moved  in the tableau, and never into a space.  Spaces must be filled from the waste pile, if any, or from the hand.  Top cards of tableau piles are available for play on foundations.
            Waste Pile.  Turn cards up from the hand one by one, placing unplayable cards face up on a single waste pile, the top card of this pile, as well as the card in hand, is available for play on foundations or the tableau.
Redeal.  One redeal permitted.

Canfield

This solitaire takes its name from the celebrated gaming house of Saratoga Springs, New York.

            Layout.  Count off 13 cards face down from the pack, square them up, and place them up at the left to form the stock (face up).  Deal one card above and to right of the stock for the first foundation.  In a row to right of the stock deal four cards, forming the tableau

            Foundations.  The other three cards of same rank as the first foundation are moved to the row with it, as they become available.  The foundations are to be built up on suit until each pile is 13 cards.
            Play.  Tableau cards may be built on each other, downward, in alternate colors.  An entire pile must be moved as a unit in building.  (Some online play poker players also allow one card at a time to be removed from the top of one pile to another.)  Top cards of the piles are available for poker play on foundations, but never into spaces.

            Spaces must be filled at once from the stock.  The top card of the stock also is available for play on foundations or on tableau piles.  After the stock is exhausted, tableau spaces may be filled from the waste pile or the hand, and the player may keep them open until he wishes to use them.
            Waste Pile.  Turn cards up from the hand in groups of three, counted off without altering the order within the group.  Place them face up on a single waste pile.  The top card of this pile is available for play on foundations or the tableau.  Redealing by threes may be continued without limit until the game is won, or comes to a standstill.

Selective Canfield

The object of this variation is to let the player console himself that he might have won had he made a correct choice at the outset if that is any consolation.  Follow all rules of  canfield  except After laying down the stock, deal five cards in a row.  Choose one of them for the first foundation.  The others remain to form the tableau.

Chameleon

This is a game much like Canfield, even to the degree of difficulty in poker winning.
            Layout.  Count off 12 cards face down from the pack, square them up, and place them face up at the left to form stock.  Deal one card above the stock for the first foundation.  In a row to the right of the stock deal three cards, forming the tableau.
            Foundations. The other three cards of same ranks as the first foundation are moved to the row with it, as they become available.  The foundations are built up in suit to 13 cards.
            Play.  Tableau  cards may be built on each other, downward, regardless of suit.  Any or all cards of a pile may be moved as a unit in building.  Top cards of tableau piles are available to be placed on foundations.  Spaces must be filled at once from the top of the stock.  The top cad of the stock is available for play on foundations or the tableau.  After the stock is exhausted, the space may be filled from the hand or the waste pile.
            Waste Pile.  Turn cards up from the hand, one by one, placing unplayable cards face up on a single waste pile.  The top card of this pile, as well as the card in hand, is available for play on foundations or the tableau.

Storehouse

Foundations.  Remove the four deuces from the pack and pace them in a row, to be built up in suit to aces.
            Layout.  Count off 13 cards face down from the pack, square them up, and place them face up to the left, forming the stock.  To right of the stock deal a row of four cards, forming the tableau. 

            Play.  Tableau cards may be built on each other, down, in suit.  An entire pile is moved as a building unit.  The top cards of the piles are available for building foundations.  Spaces must be filled at once from the stock.  The top card of the stock is also available for playing on foundations or tableau piles.  After the stock is exhausted, spaces may be filled from the hand or the waste pile.
            Waste pile.  Turn cards up from the hand, one at a time, placing unplayable cards face up on a single waste pile.  The top card of this pile, as well as the card in poker hand, is available for play on foundations or the tableau.
            Redeal.  Two redeals are permitted.

 Gate

This is an interesting tableau reserve combinations, easier to win than might be thought.  It is well to release reserve cads as soon as possible.
            Layout.  Deal two columns of five cards each, forming the “posts” of the “gate” (reserve).  Between them deal two rows of four cards each, forming the “rails” (tableau).

            Foundations.  The four aces, as they become available, are moved to a row above the gate and built up in suit to kings.
            Play.  Only the bottom card of each post is available.  All cards in the rails are available.  These cards (tableau) may be built on each other, downward, in alternate color.  From a rail pile, one card at a time from the top (or the pile, once card at a time from the top  (or the pile as a whole) may be moved to other piles.  The top cards are available for play on foundations.  A space in the rails may be filled only from the posts.  Available post cards may also be moved to foundations or built on tableau piles.
            Waste Pile.  Turn up cards from the hand one at a time, placing unplayable cards face up on a single waste pile.  The top shuffle card of this pile, as well as the card in hand, is available for play on foundations or the tableau.
