Rules

  • Object of the game: Play all the cards to the four foundations.
Game Procedure
  • The base cards for the foundations of this game will be random. The foundations will be built in a column at the center of the table.
  • You can play the base cards either up or down in suit, until each foundation pile contains 13 cards.
  • Due to the nature of this game, you can build Kings after Aces when necessary.
  • To the left and right of the foundations, are the left and right tableaus, each with 20 cards.
  • In the left tableau, only the first card to the left (with a free side) can be moved to the foundations, another tableau pile, or the cells. It can also be moved to build up or down on other tableau cards.
  • In the right tableau, only the first card to the right (with a free side) can be moved to the foundations, another tableau pile, or the cells. It can also be moved to build up or down on other tableau cards.
  • At the bottom of the table we have four reserve piles. The first card on the extreme left or extreme right side can be moved to the tableau piles (while building up or down in suit), the foundations, or the cells.
  • The "cells" are two spaces at the bottom of the tableau where you can place any card, either from the tableau or reserve piles. If you place a card in the cell, it cannot be moved until there are no reserve cards left on its side.
  • Only one card at a time can be placed in each "cell".
