This solitaire uses one deck (52 cards). All the court cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are removed from the stock before the deal. All the remaining cards are dealt face up in 4 rows of ten cards each (not overlapped).

Aces are discarded, creating four gaps.

The object of the game
To rearrange cards in the rows to get suit sequence (running from 2's to 10's) in each row.

The rules
Each gap can be filled with a card that makes a correct in-suit sequence with the card to its left. The gap at the extreme left of the row can be filled with a two.

The gap to the right of a Ten cannot be filled. You can fill gaps until all of them are blocked by Tens. Click on the empty stock pile to redeal. On a redeal, all cards that are not in a proper suit sequence beginning with a two are gathered up and randomly dealt back, leaving gaps between the ends of the existing suit sequences and the new cards dealt.

You have one redeal.
