Topsy-turvy Queens Solitaire uses 104 cards (2 decks). The seven cards with their faces down (closed) are the King's row. The top card of each tableau pile can be moved from pile to pile and to the King's row if it is possible. If a King is the top card of any of the tableau piles it is moved to the King's row and placed on top of the closed card. So this closed card becomes imprisoned. It will be free only after you built up the whole suit over it in order of rank (K,A,2,3..,Q). The King's row fills up from left to right as soon as new Kings appear. The last eighth king doesn't have an imprisoned card under it.

The rules
You can move the top card from pile to pile (to follow suit in reverse order). You can move either a single card or a set of cards.

When you have made all the moves initially available, click the stock pile to begin turning cards over. The card that is face up on top of the deck is always available for play. You can move the top card from the stock pile to the King's row (to follow suit in order of rank) or to one of tableau piles (to follow suit in reverse order). When a tableau becomes empty, you can place any card, available for play, in the space. As soon as you build up the suit so that the Queen is on top, the imprisoned card becomes free. You can move this card only onto the King's row (you cannot move it onto any tableau pile). When you have made all the available moves on the board and you still have cards in the stock you can turn it over two more times. You win when all cards are on the King's row.
