Rectangular is a two deck Forty Thieves type game.

How to Play

There are 8 foundation piles, these will be built up in suit from Ace to King. When all of the cards are moved here, the game will be won.

There are 10 tableau piles. At the start of the game 4 cards are dealt face up to each pile. Building is down regardless of suit, rather than by suit as in Forty Thieves. However, groups of cards can only be moved if they are in sequence down in suit (which is like Spider). Spaces may be filled only with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.

The remaining cards form a stock. The stock is turned over one card at a time to a waste pile. The top card of the waste pile is available for play on the foundations or tableau. There are no redeals.

The game is very similar to Forty Thieves, with the difference being building down regardless of suit rather than just down by suit are allowed, and that in-suit group moves are allowed. This makes the game considerably easier than Forty Thieves.
