This game uses 104 cards. You have 8 tableau piles in which one card is dealt to each pile at the start of the game and 8 foundations. Aces are moved to the foundations as they become available.


The cards which are present on the top of tableau piles are available for play to the foundations or to the other cards in the tableau. The foundations are built up each up to Kings while the cards on the tableau are built down, all by alternating color.

When all the moves which are initially available to you have been made, start turning over cards from the stock pile to the waste pile. You can move cards from the waste pile to the tableaus and to the foundations according to the rules. There is no redeal available to you.
