Tableau (Four rows of twelve cards each)
A gap (four in all) must be filled with the card that is the next highest in rank and of the same suit as the card to the left of the gap. For example, if a gap opens up to the right of the 10, it must be filled with the Jack. The gap and the Jack will exchange places.
A gap in the first space of a row may be filled with any Two. The player decides which row he will allocate to each suit.
Because a King is the highest–ranking card, a gap after a King cannot be filled and action is blocked.
After all possible plays have been made (when the Kings block any action), click the
Redeals are performed as follows:
Any Two and the suit sequences starting with them are left in place.
All other cards that are out of sequence are removed, and without shuffling them, dealt to complete the rows.
A gap is left to the immediate right of the cards that are in suit sequence in each row. If the only card in place is a Two, the gap will be to the right of it.
If there is no Two in a row, a gap is left in the first place of the row, so that a Two can be moved there.
Two redeals are permitted (three deals in all).
