  • The base card for this game will vary. After dealing the layout, examine the tableau and choose one of the exposed cards to move to the first foundation.

  • Build up in suit (for example, a 5Heart Suitcan be played on a 4Heart Suit) from the base card to the rank just below the base card until each pile contains 13 cards.

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build Aces after Kings when necessary.

Tableau (8 columns of 5 cards and 2 columns of 6 cards)

  • Build up or down in suit (for example, a 10Diamonds Suit can be played either on a 9Diamonds Suit or on a JackDiamonds Suit).

  • Ranking of cards is continuous: build Kings after Aces or Aces after Kings when necessary.

  • The top card is available for play to another tableau pile or to the foundations.

  • A packed sequence, or any portion of it, may be moved to another tableau pile.
