Batsford Solitaire is a two deck solitaire card game that has game play very similar to Klondike Solitaire. The player is dealt cards into 10 columns, each column having one more card than the one that preceeded it. The player can use the face up cards in these columns to build down another column alternating colors, or build up the foundations by suit from Ace to King. The cards that were not initially dealt into these columns are placed in a stock pile and the player can deal cards one at a time from the stock pile into a waste pile. The top card in the waste pile is available for play to the columns or the foundations.
