King Albert Solitaire uses 52 cards. You have 9 tableau piles with the number of cards per pile decreasing from nine to one from left to right. You also have 7 open cards below (the reserve). Any Aces from the top of tableaus and from the reserve are placed onto the foundations above the tableaus.

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

The rules
All the top cards of tableau piles and all reserve cards are available to play. You can move any single card to a tableau pile from another pile, reserve or foundation in descending sequence of alternating suit colors. Only one card at a time can be moved from pile to pile unless there are empty piles. When any of the tableaus are empty you can place there any single card available to play.

Tip: Try to free up as many tableaus as possible.

The rules state that you can move only one card at a time. But as a shortcut, BVS Solitaire will allow you to move a full or partial build if there are enough empty tableau piles, because you would have been able to get the same result by temporarily moving the extra cards into the empty tableaus.
