1 Deck.  Easy (82%). Mostly Skill.

 

Object

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

 

Layout

10 tableau piles - build down regardless of suit.  Groups of cards in sequence down in suit may be moved as a unit.  Spaces are filled by any card or legal group of cards.  At the start of the game 8 cards are dealt face up to the first 3 piles, 7 cards to the 4th pile, 6 cards to the 5th pile, and so on until 1 card is dealt to the last pile.

 

Tips

Same suit sequences should be preferred even though building is down regardless of suit.  The object is to build in suit sequences.

 

History

Simple Simon bears some resemblance to Scorpion.
