Forty Nimble Thieves
The rules are identical to Forty Thieves, but the game itself is easier to play. This version allows for the movement of ordered piles when there are enough empty Tableau stacks to permit the move.
~ Double Deck ~
– 8 Foundations – build up from Ace to King in suit.
– 10 Tableau Stacks – build down in suit.
– The Deck on the left.
The Tableau builds down in suit, so a 5 of Clubs can only go onto a 6 of Clubs. An emptied stack can be filled with any card. Cards in the Tableau can be moved to a Foundation or onto another Tableau stack, but only the top card can be moved. However, ordered piles can move so long as there are enough empty piles available to hold each card.
Tap the Deck to turn up 1 card at a time. These cards can be moved to the Tableau or to the Foundations. Only 1 pass through the deck is allowed.
Move all cards to the foundations to win.
