    • Deal
      • This game uses 2 standard decks of playing cards with 52 cards each.
      • 8 cards are dealt to the foundations (4 Aces and 4 Kings).
      • 32 cards are dealt face up to the tableau with 4 cards in each of the 8 columns.
      • The other 64 cards are dealt to the stock, or reserves.
    • Basic rules:
      • Move all the cards on the basic foundations on the top row:
        • The cards must be arranged in ascending or descending order while matching suit.
        • The left 4 foundations go from Ace to King.
        • The right 4 foundations go from King to Ace.
      • You cannot put cards on the tableau.
        • You can only put cards on either foundations, or move cards from the tableau onto the reserves if they are same suit & in sequential ascending or descending order.
      • You can only shuffle through the stock or reserve cards thrice.
      • The game ends when you run out of valid moves or move all 104 cards to the foundations.
    • Scoring
      • You earn 25 points for every card you move to a foundation if you play the game on manual mode, or 35 points for every card you move to a foundation if you have autoplay turned on. As the deal has 104 cards with 8 already laid to the tableau this equates to a maximum base score of 2,400 to 3,360 points.
      • If you clear the tableau of cards you also score a time bonus, which can be upwards of 30,000 to 40,000 points.
      • Once you’re done, you have the option to save your score on the leaderboard.
    • Assistance
      • There are 2 assistance options for this game:
        • Autoplay button:
          • Here, the computer will automatically place whatever cards are available in their valid places on the foundations.
            • This is ideal for when you’re stumped or are just new to the game.
            • This only plays cards to the foundations. It does not play cards from that tableau into the reserves.
          • Leaving this on is no guarantee that you will win the game.
            • Indeed, using the more obvious moves first might be detrimental to your long-term gameplay.
            • If the computer plays a card to the wrong foundation you can turn autoplay off, undo moves, and then lay the card to the correct stack.
        • Undo button
          • You have a limit of 10 undos in this game.
          • Undos can help you by changing the order with which you place the cards.
          • This comes in handy if you realize that you’ve place the wrong card first.
      • Assistance comes with point penalties.
        • You lose 50 points each time you use an undo.
    • Tips
      • If you see Aces or Kings on the tableau in low positions try to place them in the reserves adjacent to a sequential card so that you can access the cards underneath them.
      • If there are 2 sequential cards which are on the same tableau stack that have the same suit but are in the wrong order for your foundations, you will likely need to remove one of them to the reserves to be able play the other.
      • This game is mentally taxing to play with the autoplay turned off as there are 8 foundations, 8 tableau columns & the reserves to keep track of.
        • By turning autoplay on you can focus primarily on doing what is needed to clear out of order cards from the tableau and use the autoplay settings to move most cards to the foundations.
        • If autoplay lays a card in a position you do not like you can turn autoplay off, undo the move, then shuffle through a few more cards from the reserves and turn autoplay back on.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like Solitaire card games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
