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


10 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down in suit.  Move groups of cards regardless of any sequence.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.   At the start of the game 5 cards are dealt to each pile, in the first and 10th piles, the top card is face up, in the 2nd and 9th piles 2 cards are face up, in the 3rd and 8th piles 3 cards are face up, in the 4th and 7th piles 4 cards are face up, and in the 5th and 6th piles all the cards are face up.


2 cells (top left) - storage locations for cards.  Only 1 card allowed in each cell.







Any face up card in the tableau may be built upon another, no matter how deep it is in a pile.  All cards covering it are moved together.  When a face down card is uncovered, it is automatically turned face up and is available for play.
