At the start of the game 4 aces are dealt to form the 4 foundation piles. Then the rest of the cards are dealt into 12 tableau piles of 4 cards each. The first and third cards in each tableau pile are covered, while the rest are uncovered. The aim of the game is to put all the cards to the foundation piles, which are built up from A to K with cards of the same suit. The tableau piles are built down by alternate colours. Each time you can move one card from a tableau pile to another tableau pile or to the foundation piles. You can also move a sequence of correctly stacked cards from one tableau to another. Note that if a tableau pile becomes empty, you can only fill it with one card but not a sequence of cards. When the card over a covered card is removed, you can uncover the card. This adds a certain degree of luck into the game. But with the correct skill, this game is not hard to win. If you really cannot continue, then you can click the give up button to end the game. The more cards you put to the foundation, the higher your score.
