Four Seasons is a simple game to learn and doesn’t need much table room. We aren’t expert at it ourselves, but Morehead and Mott-Smith rate your chances of winning at 1 in 10 in their excellent and comprehensive book The Complete Book of Solitaire and Patience Games.
The foundations build up, following suit. The rank of the first card played onto any empty foundation pile must match the rank of the card placed on the first foundation in the initial layout. (For example, if the first card placed on a foundation pile is an eight, then eights must also be played onto the other empty foundations.) Building is circular, with Ace following King.
When possible, empty a tableau by building its cards onto other tableaus or onto the foundations. Try to keep a couple of tableaus empty most of the time.
When possible, organize the tableaus in suit. Then you can occasionally peel off an entire tableau to a foundation, leaving the tableau empty.
Play most cards to the foundations as soon as possible. However, sometimes it is worthwhile to leave a card in the tableau, in order to empty another tableau.
High ranking cards from the deck should not be played to empty tableau piles. Leave them in the discard pile until dealing is done.
When dealing is done and the tableaus have been emptied as much as possible, peel cards off the discard onto the tableaus and foundations. Keep trying to maintain a couple of empty piles so that out-of-order cards in the discard pile have somewhere to go.
