This solitaire uses two decks (104 cards). All cards are dealt face up in 8 rows of 13 cards each (not overlapped). Aces are taken from their dealt positions and placed at the left of each row, creating eight gaps.

The object of the game
To rearrange the cards in the rows to get suit sequence (running from Aces to Kings) in each row.

The rules
Each gap can be filled with a card that makes a correct in-suit sequence with the card to its left.

A gap to the right of a King cannot be filled. You can fill gaps until all of them are blocked by Kings. Click on the empty stock pile to redeal. On a redeal, all cards that are not in a proper suit sequence beginning with a two are gathered up and randomly dealt back, leaving gaps between the ends of the existing suit sequences and the new cards dealt.

There is one redeal.
