Foundations (8 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • The object is to finish with a row of Queens and a row of Kings.

Tableau (8 columns)

  • Place cards on top of the first King until:

    • An Ace appears. This is placed on a foundation in the row above the Kings.

    • Another King appears. It is placed to the right of the first King. Cards are then dealt and placed on the second King until a third King appears. Continue in the same way until the last King is dealt and the whole deck is laid out in 8 piles of varying lengths.

  • After the deal is complete, available cards may be built down in a descending sequence regardless of suit (for example, a 5Spades Suit can be placed on a 6Spades SuitHeart SuitClubs SuitDiamonds Suit).

  • The top card of each column is available for play to another tableau column or to the foundations.

  • An uncovered King is the equivalent of a temporary space and any available card may be placed on it.

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.
