Bath solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Baroness | Batsford >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.
The 2 cells can hold one card each, used to help move cards around.
Build the 10 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. Empty piles can be filled with a king.
You can only move one card at a time. As a time-saver you can move an additional card for every empty cell, since multiple moves would allow it.
Variation of: Somerset
Difference: Only kings can play to empty piles in the layout. Two cells have been added to maneuver cards in and out of the layout.
According to Wikipedia, "Bath is the largest city in the ceremonial county of Somerset, England, known for its Roman-built baths."
Creating empty piles in the layout no longer increases the number of cards that can be moved at once, as it does in Somerset. You instead have 2 cells to perform the same job, meaning that you will never be able to move more than a 3-card sequence.
