1 Deck.  Very Easy (98%).  Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



4 foundation piles (center) - build up in suit or down in suit from the rank of first card dealt to each pile, wrapping from King to Ace or Ace to King as necessary, until each pile contains 13 cards.  At the start of the game 4 cards of a random rank are dealt here.  The first card played to any of these piles determines whether building is up in suit or down in suit.  Once the direction of building has been established all 4 piles are built in the same direction and it cannot be changed.


10 tableau piles (left and right) - build up or down regardless of suit.  Top card is available for play on the foundations, tableau, or reserve.  Only one card at a time may be moved.  Spaces are filled by any available card, including from the reserve.  At the start of the game 5 cards are dealt face up to each pile, except the bottom 2 piles which are dealt 4 cards.


reserve (center, below foundations) - storage location for cards.  Any number of cards may be played here from the tableau, however the top card is available for play only on the foundations or any empty tableau pile.  Cards in the reserve cannot be played to non-empty tableau piles.






Kleine Napoleon is of German origin.
