Object of the game:
To arrange the 48 cards into 4
from Ace to Queen, from left to right.
The whole stock is dealt in six rows, the first and the second of 8 cards each, the
third, fourth, fifth and sixth of 9 cards each. Then the four Kings are removed, creating
four gaps in the layout (making six gaps in all).
Tableau (6 rows)
A gap must be filled with a card from anywhere on the layout provided it is in
suit sequence - either one higher than the card to the left of the gap to which it is being moved, or one lower than the card to the right of the gap - whichever is more
When a gap appears to the right of a Queen, it may be filled with an Ace of different
suit (even if there is not yet a neighboring 2), or with a card one lower in
suit sequence than the card to the right of the gap itself - whichever is more advantageous.
Only one card at a time may be moved.
The game is won if all the cards are arranged into four
ascending suit sequences (each from Ace to Queen) starting with an Ace in the top left-hand corner to a Queen in the extreme
right-hand position of the sixth row. The
can be in any order. Note: The top left-hand card in the first row follows the same rules as the other cards. For example: if the last card in the sixth row is a 4, and the top left-hand space is empty, you can move the 5 to that space.
The entire 48 card sequence "reads", as in reading and writing, from left to right in each row, and from the top row downwards. The first card in the first row follows the last card in the sixth row.
There is no redeal.
