There are eight foundation piles. The four piles on the left are to be built up in suit from Aces to King, while the four piles on the right are built down in suit from King to Ace. When an Ace or King of each suit first appear, they are to be moved to these piles. The game is won when all of the cards are moved here.
In the middle are 16 tableau piles. These are built up or down by suit with Aces and Kings not consecutive (no wraparound). Only one card at a time may be moved. Spaces are filled automatically from the face down reserve piles directly above or below. If that reserve pile is empty, the pile is filled from another reserve pile. At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to each pile.
Finally, there are the eight reserve piles that are used to fill spaces in the tableau. At the start of the game eleven cards are dealt face down to each pile.
Play involves moving Aces and Kings to the foundations and then building on them. Then build up or down by suit within the tabeau. The only way to bring new cards into the game is to create spaces in the tableau, so you want to plan your moves to create as many spaces as possible. If you cannot move to create more spaces, the game is blocked and you have lost.
Heads and Tails is a difficult game, an average player wins only about 10% of the time.
