Undercover Aces is recent new solitaire game in Pretty Good Solitaire.
At the start of the game, three cards are dealt to each of eight tableau piles, two cards face down and one card face up. Then four more cards are dealt to each of eight reserve piles, all cards face down. All of the cards in the reserve piles start the game unavailable for play. The remainder of the cards form a stock.
The reserve piles are above eight foundation piles. These foundation piles will be built up in suit from Aces to Kings, when all cards are moved here the game is won.
The tableau piles are built down by alternate colors. Groups of cards in sequence down by alternate color can be moved as a unit. Spaces may be filled by any card or legal group of cards. When no more moves can be made in the tableau, clicking on the stock will deal one card to each tableau pile.
When an Ace is played to a foundation pile, the top card of the reserve pile directly above that foundation pile is turned over. This card is then available for play on the foundations or tableau, as are the cards underneath when the are uncovered.
The objective is then to get the Aces out so that you can play them to the foundations to free the face down cards in the reserves.
Undercover Aces is a new game, so it is not yet known how often it can be won. Note that you do not have to undercover the reserve piles in order, although to take advantage of this you will have to play aces up and find out what cards are buried in the reserves and undo back to find the best piles to make available first.
