- Foundation (8 Piles)
- The foundation piles are filled with Aces at the beginning of the game. Build up in suit from Ace to King.
- Tableau (6 Columns of 16 cards each)
- Build down in alternating colors. Top card of each column is available for play to the foundations or to the tableau or to the reserve cells. A group of cards can be moved to another tableau column if they are in sequence down in alternating colors and there is enough space where the cards could be moved individually. Spaces may be filled with any card.
- Reserve (8 Cells)
- The reserve cells can be used as storage space for cards. Each cell can have only one card at a time. The cards in the cells can be moved to the foundation or to the tableau.
