Objective

The goal is to fill 8 empty foundations by creating card sequences in the tableau in descending order from King to Ace. Once a sequence is complete, move it to one of the empty foundations. The game is won when all foundations are filled, and no cards remain in the tableau or stock pile.

  • You cannot place a King on an Ace.
  • Any card or sequence of cards can be placed on an empty tableau cell.
  • When no moves are available, click on the stock to deal one card to each tableau pile. You can draw from the stock up to 5 times.
  • There is no stock re-deal.
