Napoleon's Tomb Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). 44 cards are dealt into four reserve piles (R2 - the walls of the tomb) placed on the board in the form of a cross. around the central empty reserve pile (R1). The top card of each wall is moved outside of the wall to start four tableau piles (T). There also four foundation piles (F). The four Kings of different suits are moved to the foundations as they become available.

The object of the game
To build all cards on foundations down in suit from King to Ace to King to Ace, again (K,Q,j,10,...,3,2,A,K,Q,J,...,3,2,Q).

The rules
The top card of the tableau piles, the reserves and the waste piles are available for play on foundations, tableau piles and to the central reserve pile (R1).

You can build tableau piles up in suit. Empty tableau pile can be filled with wany card.

You can fill the central reserve pile (R1) with any Ace and build it up in suit. The group of the cardds can be moved from a tableau pile to the central reserve if the top card of the reserve creates the ascending sequence with the bottom card of that group.

There's no buiding on the R2 reserve piles. Empty piles can not be filled.

When you have made all the moves initially available, begin turning over cards from the stock pile to the five waste piles. When the stock pile is empty it is recollected without shuffling and dealt to four waste piles, then three. two and, during the last redeal, there is only one waste pile.
