Playing Turn-Three (Triple Face-Up) Solitaire — The Layout

Turn-Three (Triple Face-Up) has a similar playing style to the single-deck version of the Turn-Three Solitaire game. However, the difference lies in the layout. Playing this variant requires understanding the layout before you jump into playing the game. With three decks of cards, this game presents a unique challenge that you won't find anywhere else.

  • 1.The Tableau

    The largest and most prominent section of the game, the Tableau, consists of thirteen columns of cards. The thirteen columns house 91 cards, with all cards facing up. The first column from the left has only one card, the second has two cards, and so on until the thirteenth column, which has 13 cards. All the cards face up.

    The Tableau
  • 2.The Stockpile

    The stack of cards on the upper left side of the layout is your Stockpile. This stack consists of 65 cards and will help you throughout the game. Accessing the Stockpile is where the difference lies between the “turn-1” and “turn-3” versions of Solitaire. In Turn-Three Solitaire, three cards are drawn each time instead of one.

    The Stockpile
  • 3.The Waste Pile

    This section will hold three cards at a time, drawn from the Stockpile. The three cards from the Stockpile appear face-up on the Wastepile so that you can continue playing. However, remember that you can only use one card at a time, even though the Wastepile shows you three cards at every draw.

    The Waste Pile
  • 4.The Foundation

    The Foundation consists of 12 holding cells that are visible on the top right side of the table. These sections will house all 12 suits from the three decks of cards when you organize them. You must build the Foundation in ascending order only, from Ace to King. When you’ve organized the Foundation with all the suits in order, you win the game.

  • 1.Move cards between the Tableau columns and arrange them in descending order (King to Ace). A card can go below another as long as it is alternating in color and the destination card is one higher in value. A face-down card on the Tableau gets turned over to be face-up when you move the card above it.

  • 3.The Stockpile will release three face-up cards at a time to the Wastepile for use. You can draw from the Stockpile when you are out of moves inside the Tableau. Of the three cards you get per draw, you can use only one at a time — whichever is on the top. There are a total of 65 cards in the Stockpile to use. However, you have the advantage of seeing all three cards in every draw from the Stockpile, which can help you plan future moves between Tableau columns.

Winning Tips and Quirky Tricks

  • Aim to Release Buried Cards in Large Columns First

    Instead of focusing on the small columns, where there are only a few buried cards, aim to tackle the large ones first.

  • Start with the Stockpile

    When you start playing, access the Stockpile to look at all the options you have open in front of you.

  • Focus on the Top Card

    Drawing three cards from the Stockpile makes the game a little more difficult to solve, but it’s not unsolvable. All you need to do is focus on using only the top card from the three you draw from the Stockpile.
