2 decks. Average. 1 redeal.
Swiss Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). You have 12 tableau piles with 1 card per pile and 8 foundations. An Ace and King of each suit are removed from the deck to form the foundation piles. One card is dealt to each tableau pile at the start of the game.
You may build tableau piles up or down regardless of suit. Only the top card of each tableau pile is available for play on foundations. Cards from the top row of tableau piles can be played to the Ace foundations only. Cards from the bottom row of tableau piles can be played to King foundations only. Cards from the side piles can be played anywhere. Empty tableau piles cannot be filled.
You have one redeal.
On a redeal, all piles are gathered up in reverse order of dealing.
