Identical to Russian except the Tableau builds up AND down in suit and an empty column can be filled with any card.
– 7 Tableau Stacks
– 4 Foundations – build up from Ace to King in suit
The Tableau builds up or down in suit, so a 5 of Clubs can go on a 6 of Clubs or a 4 of Clubs. Any card that is face-up can be moved, even if there are other unrelated cards on top of it. An empty space can only be filled with any card.
Move all cards to the foundations to win.
How the game got it’s name:
