In a Frame Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). 12 tableau piles (with one card per pile) are placed on the board in the form of a frame (4 cards on each of 3 sides). In the center of the frame there is a space for 8 foundations that are built up in suit from 2 to ace. 2's will be moved to the foundations as soon as they appear in the frame or in the stock pile.

The object of the game
To build the foundations up in suit to aces.

The rules
You can place one card in the frame on top of another (as a squared pile) in suit in reverse order. You can fill up empty spaces in the frame using cards from the stock pile or from another tableau pile.

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

There is no redeal.
