A Two, Three, or Four outside its proper row may be interchanged with another Two, Three, or Four outside its proper row if by interchanging them they are moved to their proper rows (To interchange cards, just drop one on the other).


Ace foundation (below stock) - build Aces only until the pile contains all 8 Aces.


8 reserve piles (bottom row) - top card is available for play on any of the foundations. No building.  Spaces are not filled except by a deal from the stock.

The objective is to get all Twos to start piles in the top row, all Threes to start piles in the second row, and all Fours to start piles in the third row.


Once a Two, Three, or Four is placed in its proper row, you can build up in suit by threes on it, at the end each pile will contain 4 cards.   Aces are removed and placed in the Ace pile.


Aces can be immediately played to the Ace foundation.


Spaces in the reserve can only be filled by a deal from the stock.
