Game Objective

Remove all the cards from the stock and tableau by building four full sequences of cards.

Tableau

  • There are seven tableaus.
  • A King may move to an empty tableau. No other cards may move to an empty tableau.
  • The tableaus build down by the same suit. Complete sequences of the same suit starting with a King and ending with an Ace are automatically removed.
  • For example the 9♠ may move onto the 10♠ and the 9♥ may move onto the 10♥. Starting with the 9♣ the following sequence can build on top 8♣ 7♣ 6♣ 5♣.
  • Empty tableau spaces are automatically filled with three cards from the stock.
  • Any card or stack of cards may move together as a group. Any stack of cards may move together, regardless of their build (no restriction on rank, suit or color).

Strategies & Tips

  1. Focus on making moves that uncover the face-down cards.
