Tableau (Twenty-four cards in three rows of eight)

  • Only the cards in the top row (exposed) are available initially for play to the foundations or to the tableau. The cards in the others rows may be played only as they are exposed.

  • Build down in suit from an exposed card to any other card. For example, a 9  can be only played on a 10.

  • Spaces are automatically filled from the stock or the waste.
