Ace foundations: build up in suit from Ace to King (for example, a 2 can only be played on an Ace).
King foundations: build down in suit from King to Ace (for example, a Queen can only be played on a King).
Reversal. When the top cards of two foundations of the same suit are in sequence, one or more cards of one pile may be transferred to the other, except for the Ace or King at the bottom.
Tableau (64 cards in an 8x8 square with every other card rotated 90 degrees. This is called the "Quilt".)
Only cards with at least one short side free (i.e., not blocked by another card) are available for play to the foundations.
Available cards may also be played to the waste pile, either up or down in suit.
No building on the tableau.
Spaces cannot be filled.
