How to Play Manx

Game Objective

The goal is to discard all cards from the four tableaus. Do this by building sequences in suit from King through to Ace. Sequences not built with the same suit are not removed.

Cell Rules

  • There is one cell.
  • Any card may move to an empty cell space. A cell can hold only one card.
  • The top card is movable.

Tableau Rules

  • There are four tableaus.
  • Any card may move to an empty tableau.
  • The tableaus build down by rank regardless of suit. Tableaus can build around-the-corner (a King may move onto an Ace). Complete sequences of the same suit starting with a King and ending with an Ace are automatically removed.
  • For example the J♠ may move onto the Q♠, Q♥, Q♣ and Q♦. Starting with the 3♠ the following sequence can build on top 2♦ A♠ K♣ Q♥.
  • Sequences of cards built down by rank can move together as a group. The sequences can build down regardless of suit.

Stock Rules

  • The stock deals one card face up to each of the tableaus when tapped.
