Big Forty solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Big Ben (Relaxed) | Bisley >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and 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.
Variations: Ali Baba
This is much like a 1-deck version of Forty Thieves. There aren't many cards left in the deck, so a game can be lost almost as soon as it begins. However, you are permitted to move a group of cards in sequence, rather than just the top card.
