Gaps 2

Layout:

All 52 cards are dealt face up into 4 rows of 13 cards each.

The Aces are then removed to create 4 empty spaces or “gaps”.

 

Play:

Place the cards in sequence from 2 to King in one suit. Gaps can be filled with the next higher card of the same suit as the card on the LEFT of the gap, OR with the next lower card of the same suit as the card on the RIGHT of the gap.

For example, if you have a gap between a 5 of Clubs and a 9 of Diamonds:

5C ___ 9D

The gap can be filled with EITHER the 6 of Clubs OR the 8 of Diamonds.

To move a card, just tap it. No card may be moved behind a King if it is the last card in its row.

When there are no more legal moves, tap the SHUFFLE button. The cards that have not yet been put in order will be shuffled and redealt. Two such shuffles are allowed.

 

Winning:

The game is won once all cards have been organized into sequence by suit.

 

Hints:

The best strategy for winning is to plan your moves with a goal in mind. Decide where you want to create a gap, then figure out what moves must be made to produce the gap.
