This solitaire uses 52 cards. 52 cards are dealt into 7 tableau piles (7 cards per pile). Seven cells (reserves) are placed above the tableau piles. Four foundation piles are placed to the right of 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 cells are available to play. You may build tableau piles down in suit. One card or group of cards in the proper sequence can be moved from pile to pile.

When a tableau becomes empty you can fill the space with any card or legal sequence of cards.

The top card of any tableau pile can also be moved to any cell. Each cell may contain only one card. Cards in the cells can be moved to the foundation piles or back to the tableau piles, if possible.

Cormorant is an easier version of Penguin.
