Introduction to Alaska Solitaire

Alaska Solitaire is a variation of Yukon Solitaire. As another variant of Yukon Solitaire, Russian Solitaire, ranks within a pile are built in suit. However, unlike Russian Solitaire, where ranks must be built in descending order, in Alaska Solitaire, they may be built either descending or ascending order.

Alaska Solitaire requires very good analytical skills to beat a randomly generated game.

Since an ace is not allowed to be placed onto a King, only the matching Queen can be placed onto a King. However, a Two is allowed to be placed onto an Ace of the same suit in Alaska Solitaire.
This makes Alaska Solitaire more complicated and more challenging to win than Yukon Solitaire. The strategy is similar to that for Yukon Solitaire, but definitely not the same.

In theory, like in Yukon Solitaire, onto every non-Ace card, there should be two cards that could potentially be placed onto it. But, since ranks in a given pile must run in either ascending or descending order, there is often only one choice for a card that can be placed onto another.
