Indian solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< House on the Hill | Indian + >>
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 non-matching suits. 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 piles in the layout are each dealt 3 cards rather than 4, with the first card face down. The layout is built by non-matching suits rather than matching suits.
Going back to the 19th century, this game had several more differences, as described by Miss Whitmore Jones.
