Vertigo is a variant of solitaire Volcano and Mega-Volcano played with 6 or 9 stashes. Instead of capturing pieces, Vertigo is all about building single color towers.

What you need

5 Treehouse sets and a set of Volcano caps.

Terminology

A tower is a stack of 5 trees of the same color. This is the way a Treehouse stash is sold, except for being one color.

Setup

Same as Volcano or Mega-Volcano.

Play

Same as solitaire Volcano, except

  • When a Volcano erupts, pieces are not captured, they remain where they land.

Ending the Game

The game ends as soon as all pieces are part of a tower and each tower is topped with a black volcano cap.
