The first 4 foundations are built up in suit from Ace to King (using any suits for the 4 piles).   The last 4 foundations are built in the tableau.  Build 4 13-card sequences of same suit, from King down to Ace.  To move these cards to the foundations, pick up the entire 13-card sequence and drop it on the desired foundation pile.   Single cards are not allowed in these foundation piles.
