2 Decks.  Very Easy (95%).  Mostly Skill.



To move one deck of cards to the foundations, to move the other deck of cards into 13 piles of 4 cards of the same rank.



4 foundation piles (top right) - build up in suit from Ace to King.


7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down by alternate color.  Move groups of cards if they are in sequence down by alternate color.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards with a King at the bottom. At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to the first pile, 2 cards to the 2nd, and so on.  The top card is face up.


13 reserve piles (on right) - Cards may be played on other cards of the same rank.  At most 4 cards are allowed in any pile.  Empty piles may be filled by any card.  At the start of the game 4 cards are dealt face up to each pile.


stock (top left, face down) - turn over 3 cards at a time, by clicking.  Unlimited redeals.


waste (next to stock) - top card available for play on the foundations or tableau.






In the reserve piles, cards may be played on other cards of the same rank.  For example, if the top card of a pile is a Three, another Three can be played on top of it.  The object is to move the cards so that there are 13 piles of 4 cards of the same rank, that is, one pile of 4 Kings, one pile of 4 Queens, and so on.  Note that the 4 cards must all be of different suits.
