2 Decks.  Very Easy (95%).  Mostly Skill.



To move one deck of cards to the foundations, to move the other deck of cards into 13 piles of 4 cards of the same rank.



4 foundation piles (top middle) - build up in suit from Ace to King.  At the start of the game an Ace of each suit are dealt here.


7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down by alternate color.  Move groups of cards regardless of any sequence.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.   At the start of the game 1 card is dealt the first pile, 2 cards to the 2nd pile, and so on.  The top card is face up.  Then 4 additional face up cards are dealt to the 2nd through 7th piles.


15 reserve piles (on right - 3 begin empty) - Cards may be played on other cards of the same rank.  At most 4 cards are allowed in any pile.  Empty piles may be filled by any card.  At the start of the game 4 cards are dealt face up to 12 of the piles.






Any face up card in the tableau may be built upon another, no matter how deep it is in a pile.  All cards covering it are moved together.  When a face down card is uncovered, it is automatically turned face up and is available for play.


In the reserve piles, cards may be played on other cards of the same rank.  For example, if the top card of a pile is a Three, another Three can be played on top of it.  The object is to move the cards so that there are 13 piles of 4 cards of the same rank, that is, one pile of 4 Kings, one pile of 4 Queens, and so on.  Note that the 4 cards must all be of different suits.
