Legitimist Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). A King is dealt from the stock pile and placed face up at the left end of a foundation row. Seven other foundation cards - Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 of any suit are placed in the foundation row as they become available. However, foundations can only be started with their initial card in the given order. For example, the foundation for 10 cannot be placed until the foundations for the King, Queen and Jack are in place.

You can not start building cards on any foundation until all the empty foundation piles are filled with the corresponding initial cards.
