Foundations (16 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build the Six foundations up regardless of suit from Six to Jack (for example, an 8Heart Suit can be played on a 7Spades SuitHeart SuitClubs SuitDiamonds Suit).

  • Build the Five foundations down regardless of suit from Five to Ace, then King (for example, a 4Spades Suit can be played on a 5Spades SuitHeart SuitClubs SuitDiamonds Suit).

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

Tableau (8 columns)

  • Place cards on top of the first Queen until:

  • A Five appears. This is placed on a foundation in the row above the Queens.

  • A Six appears. This is placed on a foundation in the row above the Fives.

  • Each Five and each Six may only be placed above a Queen of their own suit. (For example, if a 5Spades Suit or a 6Spades Suit turns up before either QueenSpades Suit, or before the second Queen of that suit has appeared and the foundation above the first Queen has already been filled in, it must be dealt to the tableau).

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

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

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to the foundations or to an uncovered Queen.

  • No building on the tableau.
