Four by Five

Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Hard (2%).  Mostly Luck.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



4 foundation piles (center) - build each foundation in suit, regardless of order.  On the top foundation, any card of the same suit as the first card dealt may be played.  On the lower foundations, start with a card of the same rank as the first card dealt, then play any card of that suit where a card of the same rank has already been played to the foundation immediately above.


4 reserve piles (left of foundations) - top card is available for play on the foundations.  At the start of the game 5 cards are dealt to each pile, the top card is face up.


stock (face down, right) - Turn over cards 3 at a time to the waste pile.  Unlimited redeals.


waste (below stock) - The top card of the waste pile is available for play on the foundations.



Four by Five is a variation of Osmosis.  Because there are more cards in the reserves and the stock is dealt 3 cards at a time instead of 1, it is a harder game.
