Napoleon the Great Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). You have 12 tableau piles with 8 cards per pile and 8 foundations.

Aces are moved to the foundations at the start of the game.

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

The rules
The top cards of tableau piles and the waste pile are available to play. You may build tableau piles down in suit. Only one card at a time can be moved from pile to pile. When any tableaus are empty you can fill the space with any card.

When you have made all the moves initially available, begin turning over cards from the stock pile to the waste pile. Again when you have made all the moves initially available, click on the empty stock pile to restack cards. During restacking all the remaining cards are first gathered together and then dealt out into tableaus. You have 7 redeals.

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.
