Tableau (Eight columns)
Discard the lower–ranking card(s) of two or more cards of the same suit in the eight exposed cards across the columns.
Ace counts higher than King, values running A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Aces are not discarded.
Keep discarding until the top cards are all of different suits, then deal the next eight cards.
No building on the tableau.
At the end of the game, when the stock is exhausted, spaces may be filled only with Aces.
The game is won if only the eight Aces remain in the tableau, one Ace in each column, and the remaining ninety-six lower–ranking cards having been discarded.
Aces Up starts at −64 points because the eight Aces are not discarded from the layout at the end of the game:
(8 cards x 5 points) = 40 points; −104 + 40 = −64 points
final score is 416, like any other two–deck games.
