House on the Hill solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< House in the Wood | Indian >>
Goal: Move out an ace of each suit when you can and build them up to king in the same suit. Move out a king of each suit when you can and build them down to ace in the same suit.
Build the 35 piles of the layout up or down in the same suit. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles can not be filled.
Variation of: House in the Wood
Difference: 4 aces build up to king rather than all 8, and 4 kings build down to ace. The layout builds down and up.
Building in both directions makes it easier to move cards in the layout.
