Rules of the game
- To move all cards to the foundations.
Seven Reserve Piles. These piles hold 1 card each and can be played
onto either the Foundations or the Tableaux. You may not play any
cards onto the Reserve Piles.
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.
Nine Tableau piles, initially dealt between 1 and 9 face-up cards.
Only the topmost card of each Tableau can be moved.
Cards can be played onto the tableaux
if they are one rank below and of a different color (DOWN IN ALTERNATE COLOR)
than the topmost card of the pile, i.e. if the topmost card is 10 of Spades, then
either 9 of Hearts or 9 of Diamonds can be played on that pile.
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 be
filled by playing any card onto it.
- Use the Reserve cards carefully.
Try keeping the foundations more or less equal
in length. While playing, you can press the F1 key to get a list
