Solitaire Blitz Gameplay
Scoring in Solitaire Blitz
Many factors influence your score in Solitaire Blitz.
Cards played – This is the simplest measure! You get points for every card played onto a build pile, and each card's point value increases as your run continues. A run occurs every time you are able to play multiple cards in a row without attempting an illegal move or playing from the draw pile.
Cards left – You get points for every card left in the draw pile when you win.*
Time left – You get points for every second left on the clock when you win.*
Bonus time – When you clear a Time Line, if the bonus seconds from doing so would have advanced the clock past 1:00, those seconds are instead converted to points.
Bursts of speed – You get extra points for playing 6 or more cards very quickly. When you play at least 6 cards with less than 0.75 seconds between each move, every card you play at that speed earns you an extra 500 points!
Clearing a stack – You get points every time you clear a stack down to zero cards.
Bonus moves – You get points for making certain unusual patterns of cards, such as:
Royal Family Bonus = The three build piles show a King, Queen and Jack at the same time.
Three Of A Kind Bonus = The three build piles show three cards of the same rank.
Up-Down Bonus = Play six or more cards in a row using just two ranks (e.g. 5-6-5-6-5-6).
Around the World Bonus = Play every card from Ace to King (or King to Ace) without changing direction or breaking the run.
Seven Seas Bonus = Play one card from each of the seven stacks, moving left to right. This is a rare achievement to pull off, so don't forget to brag!
Accuracy Bonus – Play your entire game without making a single illegal move.
* Cards and Time left over count only the standard cards and time, not any added by the Extra Cards or Extra Time boosts.
Any points earned in categories 1 or 2 are multiplied by your current Card Multiplier. The Card Multiplier starts at x1 and goes up by one whenever you find a fish. Some fish appear randomly, but you always get a fish when your run reaches 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60 cards.
