Good Measure solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Golf | Granada >>
Goal: Two aces are dealt. Move out the other two aces when you can and build all aces up to king in the same suit.
Build the 10 piles of the layout down in any suit. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles can not be filled.
During the deal, kings are moved to the bottom of the pile.
Variation of: Baker's Dozen
Difference: Two of the aces are dealt. There are 10 piles of 5 cards each in the layout rather than 13 piles of 4.
George A. Bonaventure builds the layout by alternating suit color rather than any suit. Helen L. Coops mentions is as an alternate rule.
