Emperor Solitaire

This game is played with 2 decks of cards. First, 10 tableau piles of 4 cards each are dealt. The first 3 cards are dealt face down, and the last card is dealt face up. The remaining cards form the stock pile. The object of the game is to move all the cards to 8 foundation piles, where each foundation pile is built up according to suit from A to K. The tableau piles can also be stacked from K to A with cards in alternate colours. Only one card can be moved at a time. Empty tableau piles can be filled with any card. The foundation cards can also be moved back to the tableau piles. The stock cards are turned over one by one into a waste pile, and the top card of a waste pile can be moved to a tableau pile or to the foundations. There is no redeal of the stock cards. This game has a long history, it first appears in 1890, and the original rules are kind of unclear. The rules in our version should be closest to the original version. The more cards you move to the foundation piles, the higher your rank.
