Gargantua solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Gaps | Gate >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 9 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. Any number of cards from the top of a pile can be moved. Empty piles can be filled with a king.
Turn over 1 card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
1 redeal is allowed, returning the waste pile back to the deck.
Also known as: Jumbo (AisleRiot, GNOME Games)
Variation of: Double Klondike
Difference: 1 card is turned over from the deck rather than 3. You only get 1 redeal.
This also has its own variation: Batsford
This variation by Morehead & Mott-Smith turns over 1 card at a time, the common rule of Klondike. You only get 1 redeal, but that's usually enough.
