1 Deck.  Easy (85%).  Skill/luck balanced.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

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

 

7 waste piles (below foundations) - cards are played here from the stock.  The top card of each pile is available for play on the foundations or an empty waste pile.  Empty waste piles can be filled from the stock or the top card of another waste pile.  At the start of the game one card is dealt to each pile.

 

stock (far left of foundations) - Top card is available for play on the waste piles or foundations.  No redeals.

 

1 reserve pile (face down between stock and foundations) - when the stock is empty, click on this card to turn it face up.  It is available for play on the foundations.

 

Notes

Play consists of moving cards from the stock to the waste piles and foundations.  A card from the stock can be played on any waste pile, but once placed on a waste pile a card can only be moved to the foundations or an empty waste pile.  Avoid playing higher cards on a waste pile which already has lower cards of the same suit, as that can block the game.  When the stock is empty, click on the face down reserve card.  This card represents the last chance for victory, as if this card does not allow you to move all the cards to the foundations the game is lost.
