2 Decks.  Medium (65%).  Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



8 foundation piles (middle) - build up regardless of suit from Ace to King.


8 tableau piles (around foundations) - build down regardless of suit.  Only the top card of each pile is available for play.  Spaces may be filled by any available card.  At the start of the game 6 cards are dealt face up to each pile (7 cards to the left piles).


4 reserve piles (bottom) - top card is available for play on the foundations or tableau.  At the start of the game 13 cards are dealt to each pile.





Because one of the decks is in the 4 reserve piles, it is imperative to pull as many cards as possible out of these piles.



Castle of Indolence is based on a 19th century game of the same name.  The layout was changed by Thomas Warfield to more closely resemble Beleaguered Castle and to make the game more interesting and playable.
