Manx Solitaire uses 52 cards (1 deck). You have 4 tableau piles with 1 card per pile and 4 foundations. An empty reserve pile called "tail" is placed next to the tableau piles.

The object of the game
To build 4 sequences down regardless of suit within the tableau (each running from King to Ace) and then move them to 4 foundations.

The rules
The top cards of tableau piles are available to play. You may build tableau piles down regardless of suit, wrapping from King to Ace. Groups of cards in sequence may be moved as a unit.

When any tableaus are empty you can fill the space with any card or group of cards.

The reserve ("tail") may contain only one card. Card in the "tail" may be moved back to the tableau piles, if possible.

When you have made all the moves initially available, click on the stock pile to deal one card onto each tableau pile.

There is no redeal.

Manx is the harder version of Tabby Cat.
