American Toad Solitaire Rules

American Toad SolitaireNumber of Decks: 2

Initial Layout: Twenty cards are dealt face up in a single pile to form the reserve. The next card is dealt to the first of eight foundations, leaving the other seven empty. The next eight cards are dealt in a row next to the reserve to form the tableau.

Object: The eight foundations are built up in suit from the rank of the first foundation card played, until all thirteen cards of each suit have been played, wrapping from King to Ace as necessary.

Play: Only the top card of each tableau pile, and the top of the reserve pile, are available for play to the foundations. Within the tableau, cards are built down in suit. A single card or a group of cards in suit sequence may be moved from one tableau pile to another.

Any spaces within the tableau may be filled from the reserve. If the reserve is empty, then cards from the waste may be placed in spaces.

Cards are turned one at a time from the stock and placed face-up on the wastepile. The top card of the waste pile is available for play on any tableau pile. There is one redeal.
