10 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down by alternate color.  Move groups of cards if they are in sequence down by alternate color.  Spaces are filled automatically by the face up card or group of cards in the pile immediately to the right of the open space.  The rightmost pile, if empty, may be filled with a King or a legal group of cards headed by a King.  At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to the first pile, 2 to the 2nd pile, and so on.  The top card is face up.

 

stock (top left, face down) - turn over cards one at a time to the waste, by clicking.  No redeals.

 

waste (next to stock) - Top card always available for play on the foundations or tableau.

History

Moving Left is a variation of Gargantua and Double Klondike.  The lack of redeals and the unusual method of filling empty spaces in the tableau make Moving Left considerably more challenging than those two games.  Moving Left originally appeared in a 1905 book by "Tarbart" under the name of Triangle.  The rules have been slightly modified by Thomas Warfield to make a better game.
