  • The base card for this game will vary. At the beginning of the game, examine the tableau and choose which card will start each foundation.

  • Each foundation must be of a different suit.

Foundations (4 piles: complete these piles to win the game)

  • Build up in suit (for example, a 5 can be played only on a 4) 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 (5 piles of 5 cards each)

  • Build down in suit (for example, a 10 can be played only on a Jack).

  • The top card of each column is available for play to another tableau column or to the foundations.

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

Stock (One pile)

  • Turn up one card at a time from the stock to the waste by clicking.

  • Five redeals are allowed (six deals in all)

Waste (One pile)

  • Place cards from the stock on any of these piles in any suit and in any rank, as advantageous.

  • Once placed, a card cannot be moved.

  • The top card of each pile is available for play to the foundations.
