Rules of the game
- To move all cards to the foundations.
Four Foundation piles, initially empty. Start building by moving an Ace to the
empty foundation, followed by 2, then 3 and so on until King. Each
foundation accepts cards of the same suit in ascending order only
(UP IN SUIT), i.e. once you play the Ace
of Spades on a particular foundation, you may only play 2 of Spades on that
foundation, then 3 of Spades, upto the King.
Seven Tableau piles, initially dealt between 0 and 6 face-down cards, then
1 face-up card is dealt to the first tableau, followed by 5 face-up
cards on each of the remaining tableaux. Cards can be played onto the tableaux
if they are either one rank below or one rank above and the same suit (BOTH WAYS IN SUIT)
of the topmost card of the pile, i.e. if the topmost card is 10 of Spades, then
either 9 of Spades or Jack of Spades can be played on that pile. Groups
of cards may be moved between tableaux by drag-and-drop. Double-clicking the topmost
card of a tableau pile will send it to the foundation. This is a shortcut
for the sometimes tedious drag-and-drop. An empty tableau may only be
filled by playing a King onto it.
- As with most Solitaire games, the object is to get all cards face-up
as soon as possible. Try keeping the foundations more or less equal
in length. While playing, you can press the F1 key to get a list
