Elma Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). This solitaire is very similar to Diplomat, with minor differences. You have 8 tableau piles with 4 cards per pile and 8 foundations. An Ace and a King of each suit are removed from the deck to form the Foundations.

The object of the game
Build the aces up in suit to kings, and the kings down in suit to aces.

The rules
Only the top card of each pile is available for play. You may build tableau piles down regardless of suit. Only one card at a time can be moved. You can move any single card to a tableau from another pile, stock or foundation. When a tableau is empty you may fill the space with a King.

When you have made all the moves initially available, begin turning over cards from the stock to the waste pile. You can move cards from the waste pile to the tableaus and to the foundations according to the rules. You win when all cards are moved to the foundations

There is no redeal.
