1 Deck.  Medium (25%).  Mostly Luck.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

1 center card (center) - dealt to the center pile at the start of the game.  This card determines the rank of the base cards of the other 4 piles.  This card is available for play on the 4 foundation piles if necessary and can be replaced by another card of the same rank.  There is no building on this card.

 

4 foundation piles (corners, in the 4 directions) - build the top and bottom (North and South) piles up regardless of suit from the rank one higher than the rank of the center card, wrapping from King to Ace as necessary.  Build the left and right (East and West) piles down regardless of suit from the rank one lower that the rank of the center card, wrapping from Ace to King as necessary.  Each pile can contain any number of cards.

 

stock (face down) - turn over 1 card at a time to the waste by clicking.  Two redeals.

 

waste (next to stock) - top card is available for play on the foundations.

 

Notes

Unlike in most games, the 4 foundation piles do not have to contain 13 cards each at the end of the game.  As long as all of the cards are played to the 4 piles, the game is won.  Cards can be, and should be, moved between the 4 piles at will.
