Fellow BGGers,

The game I'm trying to find the name for is a solitaire game played with a standard deck of cards. You start with 4 cards in your hand facing you. Each turn consists of adding a new card to the end of your hand. All play is based around the last 4 "base" cards in your ongoing pile that is forming in your hand. If the 1st and last card (1 and 4 of the 4 base cards) match suit, you get rid of cards 2 and 3 of the base cards. If cards 1 and 4 are the same card (ie 3 and 3, jack and jack) you get rid of all 4 base cards. You run through the whole deck until you have gone through it once.

I was taught this by friends years ago and they don't even know the name. I am throwing this out to my fellow geeks to finally find the actually name of this game. Thanks everyone.

I have always called it one-handed solitaire. When I googled that, I found a wikipedia page with the rules you describe.

Not much of a name I know!!
