1 Deck.  Medium (40%).  Mostly Skill.



To group all the cards into 4 sets of 13 cards in sequence down in suit from King to Ace within the tableau.



10 tableau piles (top) - build down in suit.  Groups of cards (regardless of any sequence) can be moved.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.   At the start of the game 5 cards are dealt to each pile.  In the rightmost 3 piles, 3 cards are face down and 2 face up, in the other piles all cards are face up.


2 cells (bottom left) -  storage locations for cards.  Only 1 card allowed in each cell.  Card is available for play on the tableau.



Any face up card, regardless of where in a pile it is, can be moved, along with all cards above it (this is like Yukon).



How They Run is a variation of Three Blind Mice invented by Erik den Hollander.
