Firing Squad

Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Hard (15%).  Skill/Luck balanced.



To remove all the cards from the tableau except the 4 Aces.



4 tableau piles (top) - cards are dealt here 1 to each pile from the stock.  The top card of each pile is available for play.  Any top card that is of lower rank and the same suit of another top card may be removed by clicking on it. Aces are considered to be of the highest rank.  Spaces may be filled by any card.  At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to each pile.


1 cell (right of tableau) - storage location for one card.  Once a card is moved here it can only be moved back to an empty tableau pile.


stock (face down) - deal 1 card to each tableau pile by clicking.  No redeals.



Play consists of removing all but the highest rank exposed card of each suit.  The only way to get at cards beneath an Ace is to move the Ace to an empty pile.


You cannot use the suit of a card in the cell to remove a card from the tableau.  Once a card is moved to the cell, it is essentially a dead card until it can be moved back into an empty tableau pile.



Firing Squad is a variation of Aces Up. It has an additional cell which makes the game easier and adds strategy.
