Category : Box Kite
Type : Double Deck
Luck : Balanced
Difficulty : Medium
Time : Long

Description:

Similar to Box Kite with 2 redeals. Before the first redeal, cards from the top Tableau piles cannot play onto the Ace foundations and cards from the bottom Tableau piles cannot play to the King foundations.

 

Layout:

~ Double Deck ~

– 12 Tableau Stacks of 8 cards each – only the top card is visible.

– 8 Foundations in the center – 4 start with an Ace and build up in suit, 4 start with a King and build down in suit.

 

Play:

Cards in the Tableau can be moved to a Foundation or onto another Tableau stack. The Tableau builds up or down without regard to suit, so any 4 or 6 can be moved onto a 5. Tableau Stacks do not wrap from King to Ace. An empty space can be filled with any card.

Before the first redeal, the 4 top Tableau piles (above the Kings) CANNOT play to the Ace foundations and the 4 bottom Tableau piles (below the Aces) CANNOT play to the King foundations. The side Tableau piles can play onto any Foundation.

When play comes to a standstill, tap the redeal button (top right) to pick up each Tableau pile and re-distribute the cards.

Eventually the Foundations of the same suit will meet (for example, one builds up from Ace to 6, the other builds down from King to 7). At this time, cards can be transferred between these Foundations. Foundation cards can also be moved back to the Tableau when needed.

 

Winning:

Move all cards to the Foundations to win.
