Similar to Yukon or Russian except the tableau builds up AND down in suit.
-7 tableau stacks
-4 foundations: build up from Ace to King in suit
The tableau builds up or down in suit. Example: 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 a King.
Move all cards to the foundations to win.
