Stock (Ninety-six cards face down)

  • Click once on the stock to deal a row of six cards to the tableau, with two additional face down cards to the reserve columns.

  • Three redeals are permitted (four deals in all).

  • In the last (fourth) deal, a row of four cards is dealt to the tableau – none to the reserve.
