How to Play Tuxedo
Move all cards to the four foundations.
- There are four foundations.
- An Ace may move to an empty foundation.
- The foundations build up by the same suit.
- For example the 4♠ may move onto the 3♠ and the 4♦ may move onto the 3♦. Starting with the 4♥ the following sequence can build on top 5♥ 6♥ 7♥ 8♥.
- There are seven cells.
- Any card may move to an empty cell space. A cell can hold only one card.
- The top card is movable.
- There are seven tableaus.
- The tableaus build down by the same suit.
- For example the 8♠ may move onto the 9♠ and the 8♥ may move onto the 9♥. Starting with the 8♥ the following sequence can build on top 7♥ 6♥ 5♥ 4♥.
- A King may move to an empty tableau. No other cards may move to an empty tableau.
- Sequences of cards built down by the same suit can move together as a group.
