8 foundation piles (across top) - build left 4 piles up in suit from Ace to King,  drop 13 card sequences of same suit cards from the tableau on the right 4 piles.


10 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down in suit.  Groups of cards in sequence down in suit may be moved as a unit. Spaces are filled by any card or legal group of cards.  At the start of the game 4 cards are dealt face up to each pile.

The first 4 foundations are built up in suit from Ace to King (using any suits for the 4 piles).   The last 4 foundations are built in the tableau.  Build 4 13-card sequences of same suit, from King down to Ace.  To move these cards to the foundations, pick up the entire 13-card sequence and drop it on the desired foundation pile.   Single cards are not allowed in these foundation piles.
