Notes

 It is allowed (in fact is it necessary in order to win)  to move cards from one foundation pile to another, in particular from Ace foundations to King foundations and vice versa.

 

Play consists of moving cards from the reserves, waste, and tableau to the foundations, and especially in strategic movement of cards within the foundations to allow more cards to be played there.

 

History

Aces and Kings is based on several common solitaire games, but this particular variation was invented by Thomas Warfield.
