  • Build the "Two" foundations up in suit by twos (odd numbers) from 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 to Q. For example, a 4 can only be played on a 2 .

  • The central space must be filled by the eight Kings, to be placed in alternating colors as they appear during the game.

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.

  • Spaces are automatically filled by four cards from the waste or the stock. After the stock is exhausted spaces may be filled with any available card.
