Playing the Game

Rules: Foundations are build up in ascending order according to suit. You may play cards onto the topmost card in any tableau column. Cards played onto a tableau column must be the same suit and either one number up or one number down from the topmost card. Multiple unrelated cards may be played as long as the bottom-most card being moved is the same suit and in proper numerical relationship to the topmost card on which it is being played. An empty tableau spot may be filled with any card.

Moving cards: To move the cards from one stack to another, use click-to-move. Click the card you want to move, then click the location to where you want to move it. You can also double click on a card to move it to a foundation stack. This makes it possible to use the game on devices that do not have a normal mouse. If your browser offers spatial navigation (such as Opera), you can use that to select the right card, but note that due to the number of positioned elements in close proximity to each other, the spatial navigation may have some trouble selecting the right cards. Note: Drag and drop will work, but the game has a tendency to freeze using this method--usually just as you are about to win. It is not recommended.

To start a new game: Click the "DEAL justly with me"* button or hit F5.

Options: You may select cardsets and card backs. Click the "Come and take CHOICE"** button to access these options.
