The work area consists of nine cells. Four corner cells are the foundations. Five cells forming a kind of cross are the tableau piles. The game is begun by dealing one card to the top left foundation to determine the starting rank (Jack in Figure). Five more cards are dealt face up to the tableau. The remaining cards form the stock. The waste pile is under the stock.
The object of the game is to arrange the cards up in suit into four foundations. The cards of the starting rank must be played the first.
You can build tableau piles down regardless of suit and color. Only the top cards are available to play.
In Figure, you can place 6 on 7 or 7.
Empty spaces in the tableau can be filled with any card.
The stock cannot be reused.
