Poker Solitaire

Layout. Deal 25 cards into a tableau of five rows of five cards poker each.

Play. Place each card to best advantage, so long as it remains within the confines of the tableau. (An alternate rule is that each card must be placed adjacent horizontally, vertically, or diagonally to some card previously dealt.)
Score the five cards in each row and column of the tableau as a online Poker hand . Two methods of scoring are prevalent, as follows:


Hand

English

American

Royal flush

30

100

Straight flush

30

75

Four of a kind

16

50

Full house

10

25

Flush

5

20

Straight

12

15

Three of a kind

6

10

Two pairs

3

5

One pair

1

2

The English system takes account of the peculiarities of the solitaire: Trying for a straight poker is hazardous, as there is likely to be no score at all if it fails. Trying for a full house is sure to give a score, at least for one or two pairs or a triplet.
The object is to place the cards so as to make the highest possible score.


layout for Poker Solitaire

Cribbage Solitaire-I

This game is one to amuse a Cribbage player: with no opponent.
Layout. Deal six cards face down to make the hand, and two face down to start he
crib.
Play. Look at the hand and layaway two cards to the crib. Turn up the next card of the pack for the starter. Score the hand! then turn up and score the crib. Follow Cribbage  rules in scoring.
Put the starter on the bottom of the pack and discard the other eight cards. Deal again in the same way. Continue dealing and discarding until only four cards remain in the pack. Turn these up and score them as a hand without a starter.
The object is to make the highest possible total on running once through the pack. By tradition, a score of 121 is considered to be a “win.”

Cribbage Solitaire-II

This is another game on the Cribbage principle, limited, however, by one deal.

Layout. Deal 16 cards one by one in a tableau of four rows of four cards. Each card may be placed to best advantage with the proviso that it must be adjacent-horizontally, vertically, or diagonally to some card previously dealt.
Play. Turn the seventeenth card of the pack face up as the starter. Score each row and each column in the tableau as a Cribbage hand, together with the starter in every case. The object is to place the cards as dealt so as to make the highest possible total score. A total of 61 or more may be considered a “win.”

Cribbage Solitaire-III

Deal cards one by one in a row, not overlapping. Look for any of the following scoring combinations in two or three adjacent cards:

One pair                                               2
Three of a kind                                     6
Three of same suit                               3
Three in sequence                                3
Three in suit and sequence                  6
Two or three cards totaling 152

Note that, as in Cribbage, a sequence is valid even though the cards do not lie in sequential order. For example, seven-five-six is a sequence if the cards are adjacent.
Score each combination, then move any one of the cards involved upon any other. The choice here should be exercised so as to make additional scoring combinations, when possible. For example, with nine-seven-five-six, score the sequence; then move the six on the seven and score the 15, nine-six.
A combination must be scored and consolidated at once, before another card is dealt, with one exception: when a pair appears, a third card may be dealt, to try for three of a kind.  The object is to make the highest possible total poker score sheet on running once through the pack.  A total of 16 or more is a “win.”
