Aces and Kings


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



-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


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.


Move all of the cards to the foundations to win!
