Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.

Build the 13 piles of the layout down in any suit. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles can not be filled.

During the deal, kings are moved to the bottom of the pile.

Variations: Good Measure, Lucky Thirteen, Perseverance, Spanish Patience

Dick and Fitzgerald, and George A. Bonaventure deal the first 3 cards of each pile face down, moving kings to the bottom as they become available. It has become customary to deal the cards all face up.
