Deauville solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Czarina | Decade >>
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 alternating suit color. Empty piles can be filled with any card.
You can only move one card at a time. Each empty pile doubles the number of cards you can move, since multiple moves would allow it.
Turn over one card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
Variation of: Forty Thieves
Difference: The first 3 cards of each pile are dealt face down. The layout is built by alternating suit color rather than matching suits.
Deauville, Emperor, and Rank and File are almost identical. Deauville only allows top cards to move. Emperor also allows entire piles. Rank and File allows any sequence.
Streets is the same game, but with the cards dealt face up. Blind Hookey is the same game, but with a redeal added.
Emperor is often described with these rules, with Deauville sometimes listed as an alternate name.
