Casket Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). 13 cards are dealt at the center of the board into the reserve pile called "Jewels". The top card is turned face up. The next 13 cards are dealt into 13 piles in the form of casket. Top five piles called the "lid". Eight other piles - the tableaus.

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 cards of tableau piles and cards from the "lid" are available to play on foundations. You can build tableau piles down in suit. Only one card at a time can be moved. Each of the five "Lid" piles can contain only one card. An empty pile in the "lid" is automatically filled by the top card of the "Jewels" pile until the "Jewels" pile is empty. Then you can fill "lid" with cards from the waste or stock piles.

When you have made all the moves initially available, begin turning cards from the stock pile to any of three waste piles. You can move cards from the waste piles to the tableaus piles, to the "lid" and to the foundations according to the rules.

There is no redeal.
