Your goal in this game is to move all cards to the 8 foundations at the top of the screen, building up by suit and starting with the cards of the same rank as the card dealt to the leftmost foundation, wrapping from K to A if necessary. When the game starts, 1 face-up card will be dealt to the leftmost foundation serving as the starting rank. Under the foundations are 9 tableau piles.
Each of the 4 tableau piles on the left side will be dealt 1 face-up card, while each of the 5 tableau piles on the right side will be dealt 8 face-up cards. 13 face-up cards will be dealt to the reserve pile on the left of the tableau piles.
The remaining cards will be placed face-down to the stock pile at the top left corner of the screen, and 1 face-up card will be dealt to the discard pile on the right of the stock pile. The 4 tableau piles on the left side are to be built down by alternating colors, while the 5 tableau piles on the right side are to be built down by suit.
In both cases, cards should be wrapped from A to K if necessary.
You can move a group of cards to another tableau pile if it forms a legal descending sequence in its current tableau pile, for example, a 7 of spades and a 6 of hearts on a tableau pile on the left side can be moved as a group to a tableau pile on the right side, since they form a legal sequence on the left side. This kind of card movements is called "shift". The top cards on the reserve pile and the discard pile can be moved to a tableau pile or a foundation.
If you have run out of moves, you can click the stock pile to deal a new card to the discard pile. The stock pile allows 2 redeals. Challenge your skills now and make as many strategic shifts among the tableau piles as possible!
