Trace Solitaire uses two decks (104 cards).

You have 9 tableau piles. 9 cards are dealt into each tableau pile. The number of face-up cards in each column decreases from nine to one from left to right. An empty reserve pile is placed next to the tableau piles.

The object of the game
To build eight sequences down in suit within the tableau, each running from King to Ace.

The rules
You may build tableau piles down in suit. Groups of cards can be moved regardless of any sequence. Any face up card in a tableau can be moved to make a build. All the cards covering it are moved together as a unit. If, during play, any closed cards become the top card of a pile it turns face up.

Empty tableaus may be filled with a King or group of cards headed by a King.

Empty reserve pile may be filled by any single card or group of cards if they are built down in suit. You can build reserve pile down in suit.

When you have made all the moves initially available, click on the reserve pile to deal 1 card to each tableau pile.
