Canfield Solitaire

Java Canfield requires a java-enabled browser
Canfield is a classic variation of solitaire which originated in an upstate New York casino in the 1890s. Gamblers paid $50 per game and received back $5 for every card they moved to the suit stacks. As you would expect, the rules were designed so that players would remove, on average, fewer than the ten cards needed to break even. Removing all cards and attaining victory is quite rare, but can be made somewhat more common by using easier options. (Canfield Instructions)
