Three Shuffles and a Draw

Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Medium (65%).  Skill.



To move all the cards to the foundations.



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


18 fans (below foundations) - build down in suit.  Only one card at a time may be moved.  Spaces are not filled.  At the start of the game 3 cards are dealt face up to each pile (except for the last pile, which just has 1 card).  After the 2nd redeal, any one card that is not the top card of its pile may be moved to the top of its pile by right-clicking on the card.  This can only be done once (called the "draw").


stock (upper left, no cards) -  After all possible plays have been made, redeal by clicking on the green arrow in the upper left corner.  All the cards in the fans are reshuffled. The foundations remain.  2 redeals.






There are two ways to move cards between fans, depending on the settings under Rules in the Options menu.  If Drag and Drop is set, the cards are dragged with the mouse.  If Click is set, clicking on a card in a fan automatically moves it to the one other fan that it can move to.


The name "Three Shuffles and a Draw" comes from the fact that there are 3 shuffles (counting the original starting shuffle plus the 2 redeals, and then a draw, where you can free any one single buried card.  This is done by right-clicking on the buried card.  It can only be done once.



Three Shuffles and a Draw is a variation of La Belle Lucie, which is the same game except that it has no draw.
