1 Deck.  Medium (40%).  Skill.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

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

 

18 fans (below foundations) - build down in suit.  Only one 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 just has 1 card).

 

stock (upper left, no cards) -  There are two redeals.  After all possible plays have been made, redeal by clicking on the green arrow in the upper left corner.  All the cards in the fans are reshuffled. The foundations remain.  2 redeals.

 

Options

AutoPlay

 

Notes

There are two ways to move cards between fans, depending on the settings under Rules in the Options menu.  If Drag and Drop is set, the cards are dragged with the mouse.  If Click is set, clicking on a card in a fan automatically moves it to the one other fan that it can move to.

 

Tips

This game is tough.  Once you move a card onto a fan, the cards below are blocked until a redeal, unless they can be played to a foundation.  Kings block all cards below them as well.  Play cards to the foundation when they are available.
