       This text is taken verbatim from the AisleRiot Manual V2.12.

       Moving the cards is reasonably obvious. Assuming you have a right-handed mouse, left-click
       on a card and drag it somewhere. Release the mouse button to deposit the card.

       If a card can be moved to the foundation(s), you do not need to drag it. You  can  double-
       click  on it and it will move. If a sequence of cards can be moved to the foundations, you
       can generally move the sequence as one move.

       Double clicking a card will send it to a foundation, if that is possible. This  is  useful
       for cleaning up large numbers of cards at the end of a successful game.

       In games which have a stock pile you can redeal it by clicking on the empty space where it
       was. Be warned that some games only let you do this a limited number of  time.  Watch  for
       the Redeals Left message at the bottom of the window.

       A  useful tip to know is that right-clicking on a face-up card which is partially obscured
       by a card laid over it will raise it so that you can see what it is.

       There is an alternative way to move cards. By selecting Click to  move  from  the  Control
       menu  you  can click once to pick up a card and then click again to place it.  This can be
       faster than dragging and will be easier on your hand since you  don't  have  to  hold  the
       mouse down. However, it may take a while to get used to.

       Some  games have options to change the way the game is played. For example Klondike can be
       played with either single card deals or three-card  deals.  In  these  games  there  is  a
       separate  menu  with  the  game's  name.  You can only change the rules of the game at the
       beginning of the game -- the menu will be inactive during the game.

       Statistics on how well you have done at a  particular  game  are  available  by  selecting
       Statistics  from  the  Game  menu.  Only  games  where you actually start moving cards are
       counted. The statistics are here for your own enjoyment, there are numerous ways to  cheat
       and it is unwise to make comparisons.
