: Visualize a three-by-three square grid, like that used in a game of Tic-Tac-Toe. That is how you will lay out the cards. The four corners of the grid are where you will build the foundations in ascending order.

When you begin, only the upper-left corner will have a card in it. You may build foundations going round-the-corner (king to ace to deuce) as needed. The five center squares of your grid -- those that form a cross -- are your tableau. Build sequences in these piles in descending order. There is no need to follow suit or alternate colors for tableau sequences.

Playing: Shuffle the deck, and deal a single card faceup onto each of the five squares of the tableau spaces.

Next, place one card faceup onto the upper-left corner. This card sets the base number for the other three foundations. The rest of the cards are your stock, from which you will turn cards faceup one at a time into a discard pile until the stock is exhausted. You can do five things with each card you put into play from the stock:

1. Start a foundation corner.
2. Build on a foundation if it's the next higher card in the suit.
3. Build on any tableau pile.
4. Put it on any empty tableau space.
