Any Ace, Two, Three and Four are dealt to the foundation piles at the start of the game.
The object of the game
To build four thirteen-card sequences on foundations from base to King as follows, regardless of suit:
A: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K
2: 4, 6, 8, 10, Q, A, 3, 5, 7, 9, J, K

4: 8, Q, 3, 7, J, 2, 6, 10, A, 5, 9, K
That is, the first foundation pile goes up by ones, the second pile by twos,..., the fourth pile by fours.
You can move cards from the stock pile to the foundations and tableau piles. There are no restrictions on placing cards from the stock pile to the tableau piles. Only the top card of each pile is available for play on the Foundations. You cannot move cards from pile to pile.
There is no redeal.
The skill in this game is to decide which tableau pile to put each card in.
