Scorpion (Solitaire)

The aim of Scorpion Solitaire is to build all four suits up from ace to king. Player is dealt 49 cards into 7 piles, 7 cards in each pile. Remaining 3 cards are put aside and can be drawn any time to first 3 piles when required. The first 4 columns each have 3 face-down cards with 4 face-up cards placed over them. The cards in the remaining 3 columns are all faced up. On the tableau, cards are played in descending order, same suit. Groups of cards can be moved; the cards below the one to be moved do not need to be in any order, except that the starting and target cards must be built in sequence and in same suit. Anytime a card or a group of cards is moved from one pile of the tableau to another, face-down top card (if any) from the tableau is turned face up. An empty tableau can only be filled with a King and can then be played in descending order. Once a suit sequence is formed, it is automatically moved to foundation piles.
