Eight On

Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Medium (25%).  Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations



4 foundation piles (right) - build up in suit from Ace to King.


8 cells (bottom) - storage locations for cards.  Only 1 card allowed in each cell.  The card is available for play on the foundations or tableau. At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to each cell.


8 tableau piles (above cells) -   build down in suit.  The top card is available for play on the foundations, cells, or another tableau pile.  Move groups of cards if they are in sequence down in suit and if there are enough free cells that the cards could be moved individually.  Fill spaces with Kings or a group of cards headed by a King.  At the start of the game the Aces are dealt to the first 4 piles, then 5 cards are dealt face up to each pile.






Groups of cards in the tableau can only be moved as a group if there are a sufficient number of empty cells available to store the cards individually.  The ability to move cards as a group is only a shortcut to moving the group one card at a time.



Try to keep as many cells empty as possible.



Eight On is a variation of Eight Off invented by Thomas Warfield.  It is a much more difficult game than Eight Off.
