  • Family: Queen of Italy
  • Deck: Two 52-card decks
  • Redeals: No
  • Game time: Long
  • Difficulty level: Hard
  • Skill level: Moderate
  • Chance of winning: Medium - about 1 in 5 games


  • Object of the game: Select a card, then build up eight foundation piles in alternating colors. Each pile will contain 13 cards.
  • Take 11 cards from the stock and place them in a row at the top, overlapping cards. This is your reserve. The top card can be moved only to the foundations, not to the tableau.
  • Take four cards from the stock, and place them in a row. This will start forming the nine columns that will be your tableau piles.
Game Procedure
  • Select one of these four cards to be your base card, and place it on the foundations.
  • Once you select the base card, deal one card from the stock to each of the remaining empty tableau piles.
  • Now deal one card at a time, from the stock to the waste pile. You can build these cards either to the foundations or to the tableau.
  • Tableau cards are built down in alternating colors. Kings can be played on Aces.
  • An empty space on the tableau must be filled with the first card from the waste pile or from the stock pile.
  • Redeals are not permitted.
