Crescent Solitaire Walkthrough

Are you tired of playing the standard Klondike solitaire game found on your operating system? If so, then give Crescent Solitaire a try! This card game features clean graphics, simple controls, and addictive gameplay.

If you are familiar with Klondike (the standard solitaire game featured on mot operating systems), then Crescent Solitaire may be confusing at first. Instead of being dealt in columns, cards are dealt around the edges of the screen (in the formation of a squared crescent). Instead of Klondike's four foundation stacks, this card game has eight with kings and aces already placed. Cards of the same suit are placed in ascending order on the foundations piles that start with aces and in descending order on the foundation piles that start with kings. The objective is to move all of the cards from the outer piles to the foundation piles.

It may not always be possible to move cards from the outer piles onto foundation stacks. Cards of the same suit on the outer piles can be moved onto each other provided that they are in ascending or descending order to reveal cards the underneath (example: a five of spades can be moved on top of a four of spades or six of spades). If you do not see any valid moves, you may click the hint button for assistance up to five times per game. If there are no valid moves, click on the shuffle button to shuffle the cards. You are allowed three shuffles in this card game; if all three shuffles are used and there are no valid moves left, the game will end.

Crescent Solitaire is a great alternative to the mundane solitaire programs found on just about every modern electronic device. This card game is straightforward without flair, fancy graphics, or audio, but it is designed to be played to pass time, not to keep gamers on the edge of their seats. The lack of sounds also makes Crescent Solitaire great to play in the office or at school without bothering others (who are diligently working while you sit and play a card game).
