Corona solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Corner Patience | Corona (Aces and Kings) >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 12 piles of the layout down in the same suit. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles are filled from the deck.
Turn over one card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
Also known as: Round Dozen
Variations: Corona (Aces and Kings), Triple Line
Aside from the standard layout being in a circle, this game is the same as Limited (Forty Thieves), except that empty piles are filled from the deck rather than letting you fill them as you please, a major restriction.
Corona (Aces and Kings) builds the layout and foundations both up and down, and allows spaces to be filled from anywhere.
