Notes

Prince Serg starts with 2 separate decks.  The first deck is dealt to the Left tableau and Left stock, the other deck is dealt to the Right tableau and Right stock.

 

The tableau piles are divided into two parts: the Left tableau and the Right tableau, divided by a line.  The Left tableau piles are built down by alternate color.  The Right tableau piles are built down in suit.  Groups of cards may be moved from one tableau pile to another, if they form a legal descending sequence in their current pile.  For example, a sequence down by alternate color may be moved from the Left tableau to the Right, since that is the legal sequence for the Left tableau.  However, a sequence down by alternate color cannot be moved from the Right tableau to the Left, since that sequence is not legal on the Right.  These kinds of groups transfers are called "shifts".  Shifts of groups down by alternate color are allowed from Left to Right, while shifts of down in suit cards are allowed from Right to Left.  Once an shift has been made, the cards in the groups cannot again be moved as a group, since they will no longer be a legal group for their side of the tableau.

 

Empty tableau piles can only be filled by a card from the same side of the line.  Empty piles on the Left can only be filled by a card or group of cards from the Left side, empty piles on the Right can only be filled by a card or group of cards from the Right side.  In addition, on the Left empty piles can only be filled by a King (or group of cards headed by a King).
