Aces and Kings

Object:

Build 8 tableau stacks down from King to Ace regardless of suit OR up from Ace to King regardless of suit.

Layout:

-DOUBLE DECK

-8 foundations: 4 start with an Ace and build up regardless of suit, 4 start with a King and build down regardless of suit

-2 reserve piles of 13 cards each above the foundations

-the deck on the bottom left

-the waste pile to the right of the deck

-4 tableau piles of 1 card each to the bottom right

Play:

Cards in the tableau can be moved to a foundation. Empty tableau spaces are filled automatically with a card from the deck. Once the deck is empty, spaces in the tableau are filled with cards from the waste pile. Reserve piles can be moved to a foundation, but only the top card can be moved. An emptied reserve pile cannot be refilled.

Eventually the foundations will meet. Example: one builds up from Ace to 6, and the other builds down from King to 7. At this time, cards can be transferred between these foundations.

Winning:

Move all of the cards to the foundations to win!
