How to Play Scorpion Tail

Game Objective

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

Tableau Rules

  • 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 alternating colors.
  • 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♣.
  • 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).

Stock Rules

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