La Belle Lucie Solitaire is a 1 player (solitaire) card game. Your goal is fill the 4 top slots with an entire suit, in order (Ace to
King), for all 4 suits. The catch is, you can only tranfer cards from the piles below when they are on the top of the pile,
and, if you are trying to transfer them among the bottom (not on the top 4 rows), they must be place on the card that is
the same suit, and one value higher than, the card you are trying to move. So, having the King on the
top of the pile means that that pile can not be touched at all, unless you get the top 4 column of the same
suite all the way up to a Queen first. You are allowed to randomly shuffle the cards on the bottom twice, and
after that you are allowed ONE "Merci" move, which allows you pick 1 card (and only once during the entire game) from
anywhere (including the middle of the pile) and move it. It is a lot harder than it looks...
La Belle Lucie Solitaire was put out by the same company, Eversoft Games, that originally put out Jeremy Spiller's smash arcade game Zenix, before Sundog Systems aquired the rights to it. It should be noted that the game is written in BASIC, but runs at a decent clip.
