Game Objective

Move all cards to the eight foundations.

Foundation

  • There are eight foundations.
  • An Ace may move to an empty foundation.
  • The foundations build up by the same suit.
  • For example the 5♠ may move onto the 4♠ and the 5♦ may move onto the 4♦. Starting with the 5♠ the following sequence can build on top 6♠ 7♠ 8♠ 9♠.
  • Once on the foundation, the top card can continue to move as needed to build sequences on the tableau.

Tableau

  • There are ten 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.
  • For example the 5♠ may move onto the 6♠ and the 5♥ may move onto the 6♥. Starting with the 5♠ the following sequence can build on top 4♠ 3♠ 2♠ A♠.
  • 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).
