1 Deck.  Medium (65%).  Mostly Skill.



To group all the cards into 4 sets of 13 cards in sequence down by alternate color from King to Ace within the tableau.



7 tableau piles (top) - build down by alternate color.  Groups of cards (regardless of any sequence) can be moved.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.  At the start of the game 7 cards are dealt to each pile.  In the first 4 piles, 3 cards are face down and 4 face up, in the next 3 piles all cards are face up.


reserve (top left, face down) - Clicking deals 1 card to each of the first 3 tableau piles (this can be done only once).



Any face up card, regardless of where in a pile it is, can be moved, along with all cards above it (this is like Yukon).



It is imperative that the face down cards be uncovered as soon as possible.  There are often several choices of builds to make and it is beneficial to work through possibilities.  This is very much a game of skill, and it is difficult.



Scorpion Tail is Scorpion with building down by alternate color rather than down in suit.
