2 Decks. Easy (96%).  Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



8 foundation piles (left and right) - on the left 4 piles build up in suit from the Aces to Kings, on the right 4 piles build down in suit from the Kings to Aces.  Cards (other than the starting base cards)  may be transferred from one foundation to another.  At the start of the game an Ace and King of each suit are dealt here.


20 fans (between foundations) - build up or down by suit.  Only one card at a time may be moved.  Spaces are filled automatically from the stock unless the stock is empty, in which case they are not filled.  At the start of the game 3 cards are dealt face up to each pile.


stock (face down) - fills spaces in fans automatically with 3 new cards.  Clicking on the empty or non-empty stock does a redeal.  There are 3 redeals.






Building on the fans can be reversed multiple times on the same pile.


Spaces made by playing all the cards of a fan are automatically filled from the stock (this is the only way new cards come into the game).  If the stock is empty, spaces are not filled.


In this game a redeal actually only slightly rearranges the cards in the fan.  The exposed card of each fan is placed at the bottom of the fan during each redeal. The other cards in the fan remain in the same order.



This is a 2 deck member of the Fan family of games.  It is actually called "Rainbow", but since there is another game of that name it has been renamed "Rainbow Fan".
