Ali Baba solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Alhambra Palace | Alternate >>
Goal: All 4 aces are set out. Build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 10 piles of the layout down in the same suit. You can move a group of cards if they match the build sequence. Empty piles can be filled with anything.
Turn over one card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
Variation of: Big Forty
Difference: The aces are dealt.
The head start by dealing the aces isn't necessarily an advantage. It just means that you begin by trying to release buried twos rather than aces. The tiny stock pile is reduced from 12 cards to just 8, giving you 4 less cards to bring into play.
