Old Crow solitaire uses one deck (52 cards). 49 cards are dealt into seven columns of seven cards each with the number of face-down cards per pile increasing from zero to six from left to right. So the first column contains 7 face up cards and the last sixth column contains one face up card and 6 face-down cards. The remaining 3 cards are dealt into 3 reserve piles.

You have 4 foundations.

Aces are moved to the foundations as they become available./p>

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

The rules
You may build tableau piles down in sequence and alternating color. Groups of cards can be moved regardless of any sequence.

Any card face up in the tableau can be moved to make a build. All the cards covering it are moved together as a unit. Empty tableaus may be filled with a King or group of cards headed by a King.

Cards from reserve piles are available to play on foundations and tableaus. Empty reserve piles cannot be filled.
