Double Canfield is a two deck variation of the classic game Canfield.

How to Play

At the start of the game 13 cards are set aside as a reserve, with only the top card available. Then five cards are dealt out one each to five tableau piles. These piles will be built down by alternate color. Groups of cards in sequence down by alternate color can be moved. Empty spaces in the tableau are filled by the top card of the reserve, until it is empty, then by any card.

Finally, one card is dealt to become the first card of the first foundation pile. The foundation piles are then built up in suit from the rank of this first card dealt until each pile contains 13 cards (wrap by playing Aces on Kings as necessary). Such wrapping is also allowed in the tableau.

The remainder of the cards form the stock. The stock is dealt out either one card at a time or three cards at a time to the waste pile, depending on the rule setting in the Options menu. The top card of the waste pile is available for play.

There are unlimited redeals, so you can go through the pack as many times as you like. However, when the cards are dealt out 3 at a time, you may not be able to get at all the cards and the game may block.

With the 1 card deal setting, scores of 100% in Double Canfield are common. With the 3 card deal setting, it is considerably harder to win every game.
