2 Decks.  Hard (5%).  Skill/Luck Balanced.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

8 foundation piles (left and right) - build the piles on the left up in suit from Ace to King, build the piles on the right down in suit from King to Ace.  An Ace or a King of each suit is dealt here at the start of the game.

 

tableau piles (middle) - At the start of the game one card each is dealt to 10 piles.  There is no building within the tableau.  All cards in the top and bottom rows are available for play on the foundations.  Cards in the middle rows are available if there is no card immediately above or immediately below it (that is, there is at least one empty space either above or below the card).

 

stock (top left, face down) - clicking fills empty spaces in the tableau.  If there are no empty spaces (all the rows are complete), then clicking deals another row of 10 cards to the bottom of the tableau.

 

 

Notes

Play proceeds by moving any available cards to the foundations.  When there are no more moves, click on the stock to fill any empty spaces and make any new possible moves to the foundations.  When there are no more spaces and no more moves, clicking on the stock will deal another row of 10 cards to the bottom of the tableau.  Cards in the tableau are always available unless they are blocked by having another card both above and below.  These cards remained blocked until one of the cards either immediately above or below is moved.

 

When the foundations piles of the same suit meet, is its allowable (and encouraged) to move cards from one foundation to the other.
