>How many cards are in each tableau pile of Dutch solitaire? I've been trying to count them, but I can't.
Short answer: 10
There are two decks used in this game, hence 104 cards. After the deal, there are 38 cards in the stock, 1 card in the waste, and 5 cards (Aces) in the foundations, for a total of 44 cards not in the tableau. This leaves 60 cards in the tableau, divided evenly among 6 piles.
So, there are 10 cards in each tableau pile.
(One can also use a magnifying tool to make actual counting easier, and this gives the same answer. I checked. )
