2 separate decks.  Very Easy (98%).  Mostly Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



8 foundation piles (top) - build up in suit from the rank of first card moved to the first pile, wrapping from King to Ace as necessary, until each pile contains 13 cards.


10 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down in suit.  Only the top card of each pile may be moved.  Spaces may be filled by any available card.  At the start of the game 5 cards are dealt face up to each pile.


2 cells  (top) - one of the two cards is moved to the first foundation pile to become the base.  The other card is then available for play on the foundations or tableau.  Any card may be moved to an empty cell.


stock (bottom left, face down) - the first time through the deck deals 1 card to 5 waste piles clicking.  Each of the 5 cards are available for play on the foundations or tableau.  When the next set of 5 cards are dealt, any cards remaining in the 5 waste piles are moved out of play until the redeal.  One redeal.  The redeal collects all the unplayed cards from the first deal to form the new stock.  After the redeal, clicking on the stock deals 1 card to a waste pile.


waste (next to stock) - Before the redeal there are 5 piles, after the redeal there is one. Top card is available for play on the foundations or tableau.






Double Nickels starts with 2 separate decks.  The first deck is dealt face up to the tableau (the two extra cards dealt to 2 reserve piles).  The other deck is dealt entirely to the stock.



Double Nickels is a variation of Double Fives.
