Solitaire Rules
Set Up
Tableau (15 piles)

Each pyramid must be built,
row by
row, from bottom to top.

For each pair of cards in a lower
row, place a card with a value equal to the sum of the pair in the
row above.

When the sum exceeds 13, the value of the required card is found by subtracting 13 from the sum (for example, if the sum is 23, that is 10 more than 13, the required card must be a 10).

The following is an example of a complete pyramid:

In the above scheme, the 6 in the 4th
row has been placed above the 10 and the 9 of the 5th
row because 10 + 9 = 19; 19  13 = 6.

When a pyramid is complete, it is automatically discarded (to the topright
pile).

Five more cards are automatically dealt from the
stock to the bottom pyramid
row.
Reserve (3 piles)
Stock (top left)
Waste (1 pile, to the right of the
stock)
