Forty Four Thieves is a two deck Forty Thieves type game.

How to Play

Forty Four Thieves is very similar to Forty Thieves, except Forty Four Thieves has 11 tableau piles instead of 10. This small difference actually can have a big impact on the game, making it easier to win in many cases.

At the start of the game, four cards are dealt face up to each of 11 tableau piles. The remainder of the cards form a stock. The stock will be turned over one card at a time to the waste pile by clicking.

There are 8 foundation piles. These will be built up in suit from Ace to King. The objective is to move all of the cards to these foundation piles to win the game.

Building in the tableau is down by suit. Only one card at a time may be moved. Spaces may be filled by any card.

Play is as in Forty Thieves, except that also all of the cards in the waste pile are visible (which actually makes Forty Four Thieves like the game Cadran rather than Forty Thieves itself). This also helps make the game a bit easier as it allows you to see where specific cards are buried in the waste pile.

Strategy is exactly like Forty Thieves, with the added benefit of an additional tableau pile. This is important because it is very useful to create an empty tableau pile that can essentially be used like a cell in FreeCell. The additional tableau pile gives you more piles available for this use.
