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

Tableau (17 fans of 3 cards each and 1 of 1 card)

During the deal, the Kings are automatically moved to the bottom of their piles.

  • Each fan cannot contain more than three cards at a time.

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

  • Only one card at a time can be moved.

  • Spaces are not filled.
