Finding a specific game in GoodSol is like finding a needle in a haystack!!
Therefore this question: Can I in GoodSol find this solitaire game, which I know here in Denmark?
Name (translated from the Danish name): "Head of Office" or "Office Manager"
Cards: Two decks.
Tableau: 4 rows (horisontal) of 13 cards; 1st and 3rd rows dealt face down - 2nd and 4th rows dealt face up. Each row overlapping the other. The remaining cards (second half of the cards) form a stock pile.
Foundations: NO foundations.
Build: On free cards built down in alternating colours from King to Ace. Single cards or complete sequences can be moved - no partial sequence may be moved. Empty spaces are filled by a King or a sequence, headed by a King. When no more moves are possible, 13 cards from the stock pile are dealt to the tableau, overlapping (and thus "locking") the cards already there.
Object: Build complete sequences from King to Ace. Such complete sequences are removed from the tableau. The game is won, when all sequences (8 in number) are formed and removed. This very seldom happens!
I hope my description of the game is so accurate that you can tell me, whether to find it in GoodSol or not. I hope for a success, as I find this game to be one of the greatest of solitaire card games - second only to Senior Wrangler!

That's going to be a problem when there are so many games, but we try to make it as easy as possible to find what you are looking for.
Your description clearly indicates that this is a Spider type game, because of the removing of completed sequences from the tableau with no foundations. So the Spider Type group is the place to look.
Also, because of the 13 cards across, it must be a Large Table Game as well. That pretty much narrows it down to Big Spider and Trillium. Big Spider is a little different (it's just a 3 deck version of Spider). Trillium is almost exactly the game you describe. The primary difference is that Trillium allows any cards in spaces, not just Kings, so it's a little easier. But you could play Trillium and just only put Kings in empty spaces and you'd have it.

I know the game I am looking for is a Good sol game. Cards are dealt in rows vertical and horizontal.I know you can move a column if for example it is headed by a 6 that column can be moved to another column with a 7 at the bottom. thanking you. J Saunders

Joan, I'm afraid I can't identify the game from that description, can you describe it more?

Looking for a game I know as Mod3. There are 3 rows. The top row is filled with 2's as a base and then increases by 3 (next card 5, then 8, and then J). The second row starts with 3's and the bottom row starts with 4's and each fill up with the card 3 up. The bottom row has 8 columns and only the top card can be used. Open spaces can be filled from the pile, which upon a deal deals one card to each column, or from the upper rows. Aces are dealt their own pile on the right and are not used (free cards, basically). You can only go through the deck once. Played with 2 decks.

That Mod3 game sounds like the game Virginia Reel in Pretty Good Solitaire.

There is a game I learned long ago, but forgot the name. First, you put down 4 rows of 4 cards with the top card facing up to make four piles as a reserve. Then you put the left over cards into your hand to turn over 3 at a time like in Klondike. The first card of this pile gets turned over and used as the starting pile-dependent on what it is-heart-diamond so on... first you have to get at least one of the previous suit (A-K)-say diamond for example until you can go on to another suit. At the end, you will get 4 rows of all four suits-but you can only add to each new row, if that card value is in the previous row. All 4 rows complete and you win. Does this sound like a game anyone knows? let me know. Thanks

In PGS, this is "Osmosis", though I believe the cards are turned up one at a time.

A friend of mine taught me a solitaire game with loosely based on the game Belote, or Klaberjass, that I could play be myself. I forgot the rules, but does anyone know them, or he name of he game, or if there is a similar game in PGS?
