1 Deck.  Medium (40%).  All Skill.



To group all the cards into 4 sets of 13 cards in sequence down by alternate color from King to Ace within the tableau.



4 cells (top center) - storage location for one card.   Only 1 card allowed in each cell.  At the start of the game 1 card is dealt to the center two cells.


10 tableau piles (below cells) - build down by alternate color.  Move groups of cards if they are in sequence down by alternate color and if there are enough free cells that the cards could be moved individually.  Spaces can be filled by any card or legal groups of cards.  At the start of the game 5 cards are dealt face up to each pile.






Creating empty spaces in the tableau is the key to victory.  The more empty spaces there are, the more cards you can move as a group.  Also, keep as few cards in the cells as possible as this also allows more cards to be moved.
