Baker is an "open" solitaire game, a version of Eight Off, in which all cards are dealt face up. Since a player has complete information on all the cards, each position of the cards can be analyzed to determine the "best" next move. (Baker appeared in Martin Gardner's column in the June 1968 issue of Scientific American. The game is named after C.L. Baker, who introduced the game to Gardner.). The object of the game is to sort all the cards of each suit into a separate pile, called a "terminal pile." The cards must be placed one at a time on this pile, in ascending order, with the Ace on the bottom and the King on top.
