Once the deck has been shuffled, lay out twenty-eight cards in seven columns.

The covered cards are all at the top of the deck with the uncovered cards at the bottom. When setting up the columns, be sure to leave ample space on the right hand side for the four foundation piles of each card suit.

Any face up card from any column can be moved to another column to make an ascending sequence of cards, however, the cards must be placed in alternating colours. If a face up card is moved that is not at the bottom of a column, all of the cards below it must also be moved to the new column with it. The cards that move as a result do not have to be in sequence or alternating colors. If the join between two columns is descending and alternating in colours then the move is valid. As each ace card is uncovered and available, it may be transfered to the foundation pile for the respective suit.
As the game play progresses, empty columns may arrise. When this happens, any available kings may be moved to the empty space and start the head of a new ascending column. Likewise, as soon as a face down card is at the bottom of a column, it is available for game play and may be turned right side up. The game ends when all of the four foundation piles have been completed in ascending order with the appropriate suits.
The control are very simple, by using your hands to shift the cards to and from various columns the covered cards become available for use. Since this is a table top card game, there are no other materials needed..
