Downing Street is a four deck variation of the Forty Thieves type game Number Ten.

How to Play

At the start of the game, eight cards each are dealt to ten tableau piles, alternating face up and face down. The remaining cards form a stock, which is turned over one card at a time to a waste pile. There are no redeals.

The objective is to play all of the cards to the 16 foundation piles. The foundation piles are built up in suit from Ace to King.

The tableau piles are built down by alternate color. Groups of cards in sequence down by alternate color may be moved as a unit. Spaces in the tableau may be filled by any card.

Downing Street is therefore a very typical Forty Thieves type game, except for there being four decks. It is easy to play but not that easy to win. As a new game, its win rate is not yet known but looks to be something like about 20%.
