Deuces and Queens

Top  Previous  Next

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



To move all the cards to the foundations.



8 foundation piles (middle) - build the first 4 piles up regardless of suit from Twos to Kings to Aces, build the last 4 piles down regardless of suit from Queens to Aces to Kings.


4 tableau piles (below foundations, on right) - build up or down regardless of suit, wrapping from Ace to King or King to Ace if necessary.    Spaces are filled from the stock.  When the stock is empty, spaces cannot be filled.  One card is dealt to each pile at the start of the game.


3 reserve piles (top) - Top card available for play on the foundations or tableau.  13 cards are dealt to each reserve at the start of the game.


stock (bottom left, face down) -  Turn over 1 card at a time to the waste pile by clicking.  No redeals.


waste (next to stock) - Top card available for play on the foundations or tableau.






It is allowed (in fact it is necessary in order to win)  to move cards from one foundation pile to another, in particular from Two foundations to Queen 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.


Because Aces and Kings are the last cards played to each foundation (whether they go up or down), these cards require great care in their placement.



Deuces and Queens is a variation of Aces and Kings.  It was invented by Thomas Warfield.
