Patiens 1 is a relaxing card game played with a single deck of cards. The object of the game is to place all the cards in the correct order and stack them away from ace to king to the four empty squares at the top of the screen. The cards are laid out in rows on the table, with only the top card facing up. Players can stack the cards that lie in the rows on the table in descending order, from king to ace, with the black and red cards placed alternately. Players can draw a new card from the pile each time. Only the king can be placed in an empty row in the tableau.
