House in the Wood

Top  Previous  Next

2 Decks.  Medium (60%).  Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



8 foundation piles (top) - build up in suit from Ace to King.


35 fans (below foundations) - top card is available for play on the foundations or other fans. Fans are built up or down by suit.  Only 1 card at a time may be moved.  Spaces are not filled.  At the start of the game 3 cards are dealt face up to each pile (except for the last pile, which is dealt 2 cards).






Watch out for higher cards underneath lower cards of the same suit in a fan.


Note that while you can build fans up, doing so can make it very difficult to get the cards out to the foundations!


Build up only when there is no other way to extract a card.


This game can usually be won with best play.



House in the Wood is a 2 deck version of La Belle Lucie.
