Diavolo Solitaire uses two decks (104 cards). You have 9 tableau piles with the number of cards per pile decreasing from nine to one from left to right. The top card in each pile is face up.

The object of the game

  • To move two black and two red Aces to the left four foundation piles and to build them up in color to Kings.
  • To build 4 sequences of 13 cards down by alternating color within the tableau (each running from King to Ace) and then move them to the right four foundations. Two sequences are started with red kings and another two ones are started with black kings.

The rules
The top cards of tableau piles are available to play. You may build tableau piles down in sequence and alternating color. One card or group of cards in the proper sequence can be moved from pile to pile. If, during play, any closed cards become the top card of a stack, it is automatically turned over. Empty tableaus may be filled with a King or group of cards headed with a King.

When you have made all the moves initially available, begin turning over cards from the stock pile. One card at a time is turned over from the stock. You can move cards from the stock pile to the tableau piles and to the foundations according to the rules above.

There is no redeal.
