Objective: To move all cards to the foundations.

Layout: One Double Deck (104 cards). Clicking the deck will send the topmost card to the waste pile. In Tournament mode, one redeal is allowed.

One Waste pile, filled from the deck. You may not play any card onto the waste pile. The topmost card of the waste can be played either to the foundations or the tableaux.

Eight 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.

Ten Tableau piles, the first two are dealt 6 face-up cards, while the remaining get 5 face-up cards. 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. All face-up cards of a Tableau can be moved as a group. 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.

Tips: The strategy is exactly the same as in Klondike.
