Japanese Rug Solitaire
2 decks. Average. 2 redeals.
Japanese Rug Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). An Ace and a King of each suit are removed from the deck to form the foundation piles. 64 cards are dealt face up in eight rows of eight cards each, in alternating orientation. The first card is dealt vertically, the second horizontally etc. This 8x8 square forms the tableau.
Tableau cards, that have at least one of their shorter edges free, are available to play on foundations. Available tableau cards may also be played on the waste either up or down in suit. Empty tableau cannot be filled.
There is no building within the tableau.
When you have made all the moves initially available, begin turning over cards from the stock to the waste pile. There are two redeals. Japanese Rug is similar to Crazy Quilt. It allows one more redeal than Crazy Quilt to give you a better chance of winning.
