Scorpion Solitaire is a game which is both incredibly difficult and requires large amounts of luck. The game is won when four rows with sequences from kings to aces are completed and discarded.
There are two areas in the layout. Centrally located is the tableau with seven piles. The first four piles contain three cards face down with four cards face up on top. In the last three piles all the cards are face up. The tableau is considered the "body" of the Scorpion. The "tail" is located at the top right of the table, and is made up of three more cards that are placed in a pile face down.
Scorpion Solitaire rules
All cards face up are free and can be brought into play. Any card face up can be moved to a card of the same suit with rank one more than the card being moved. All cards in the same pile that are located on top the card which is moved are moved with it. If a pile in the tableau is empty, only a king can be moved to the pile. When moves are no longer possible, the three cards in the scorpion's "tail" are put into play by moving the, to the three piles to the far left. When all the cards in one suit are built into a sequence from kings to aces, it is eliminated from the game. Scorpion Solitaire is won, when all the cards in the game are organized into sequences from kings to aces in each of the four suits and are eliminated from the game.
