Chinese Solitaire uses one deck (52 cards). 49 cards are dealt into seven columns of seven cards each with the number of face-down cards per pile increasing from three to six from fourth to seventh column. So the first three columns contain 7 face up cards, then fourth column contains three face down and four face up cards and the last seventh column contains one face up card and 6 face-down cards. The remaining 3 cards are dealt face down as a reserve.

You have 4 foundations.

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
You may build tableau piles down in sequence and alternating color. Groups of cards can be moved regardless of any sequence.

Any card face up in the tableau can be moved to make a build. All the cards covering it are moved together as a unit. Empty tableaus may be filled with a King or group of cards headed by a King.

When you have made all the moves initially available, click on the reserve pile to deal the 3 remaining cards face up to the three leftmost piles.
