5 tableau piles - discard pairs of cards whose ranks add to 14.  The top card of each pile is available for pairing.  The top card of any pile can also be moved into an empty space.  At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to each pile.


2 reserve piles (bottom) - 2 additional cards that can be paired with the cards in the tableau.  Once paired, these cards are not replaced by the stock, nor can cards from the tableau be used to fill empty spaces.
