There are four foundations, which are initially empty. There are seven tableau piles, fanned down. The first tableau starts with one card, the second with two cards, and so on to the seventh, which starts with seven cards. All tableau cards are face up. The remaining cards are kept face down in the hand.


Tableaus build down, following color (red on red and black on black). Full builds in suit are available for play on other tableaus. The top card of the wastepile may also be built onto the tableaus. Any available card or build may be played to an empty tableau.

Foundations build up in suit. Top cards of tableaus and wastepile are available for building onto the foundations. Only an Ace may be played to an empty foundation.


You may deal at any time by taking a three-card packet from the hand and turning it face up onto the wastepile. You may redeal as often as you like.


The goal is to move all the cards onto the foundations.
