Foundations (9 piles)

  • The King (the "Sultan") in the center foundation will remain undisturbed throughout the game: no building is allowed.

  • Build the Ace foundation up in suit from Ace to Queen.

  • Build the other 7 King foundations in an ascending suit sequence, beginning with the Ace and ending with the Queen.

  • If the game succeeds, the "Sultan" will be surrounded by the eight Queens in his harem.

Reserve (8 cards, called the "Divan")

  • These cards are available for play on the foundations.

  • Each pile can contain only one card.

  • Spaces are filled automatically by the waste, or if empty, from the stock.


  • Turn up one card at a time from the stock to the waste by clicking.

  • Two redeals are permitted (three deals in all).

Waste (1 pile)

  • The top card is available for play to the foundations.
