This solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). 19 cards are dealt in the form of a fir-tree. 8 tableau piles with 6 cards per pile are dealt to the left and to the right of the fir-tree. Some cards in these piles are closed.

Aces are moved to the foundations as they become available.

The object of the game
To build the foundations up in suit to Kings.

The rules
The top card of each tableau pile, uncovered cards of the fir-tree, top cards of the foundation piles and the waste are available for play. You can move cards from waste and the fir-tree to the tableau piles and to the foundations. You may build tableau piles down in any suit except that the suit of the built card must differ from the suit of the card it is built on. One card or group of cards in the proper sequence can be moved from pile to pile. If, during play, any closed cards becomes the top card of a stack, it is automatically turned over.

When any tableau pile is empty you can fill the space by a King or a group of cards headed by a King.

You have one redeal.

This solitaire variation was invented by Boris Sandberg.
