Materials

  • Deck of playing cards

Directions

  1. Deal the cards facedown into seven columns of overlapping cards.
  2. The first column contains one card, the second column two cards, the third three cards, and so on.
  3. Turn the last card of each column faceup.
  4. Stack the leftover cards facedown to form a stock pile.
  5. The object of this game is to move the four aces to four foundation piles above the seven columns, then build each foundation pile up in suit from ace to king.
  6. To play, turn three cards at a time faceup from the stock pile to form a waste pile. Only the top card of the waste pile and the last card of each column may be moved to a foundation pile.
  7. To move cards from the waste pile to the columns or to move cards among the columns (to expose new cards for play), build columns downward in sequence and alternating colors. (For example, lay a black ten on a red jack, a red nine on a black ten, and so on.) You may also move a sequence of cards together from the end of one column to the end of another. (For example, move a red five and a black four together from the end of one column to another column ending with a black six.)
  8. When a facedown card in a column is exposed, turn it faceup.
  9. An empty column may only be filled with a king.
  10. When the stock pile is empty, turn the waste pile facedown and use it as a stock pile.
  11. The game ends when either all the foundation piles are filled or when no more moves are possible.
