Limited + solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Limited | Little Billee >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 12 piles of the layout down in the same suit. You can only move one card at a time. Empty piles can be filled with any card.
When playing onto a card in the layout, the 2 cards become linked and locked, indicated by overlapping them close together. They can only be moved to an ace pile, and can not be played upon.
Turn over one card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
One redeal is allowed, returning the waste pile back to the deck. At this point 4 cards are dealt. Each can be played to the layout, and a new card will take its place. Turn up one card at a time from the deck, playing it if you can. The game ends if it can not be played.
Variation of: Limited (Forty Thieves)
Difference: When playing onto a card in the layout, the 2 cards become linked and locked. They can only be moved to an ace pile, and can not be played upon.
One redeal is allowed, at which point 4 cards are turned up. These cards are replaced from the deck if they are played. The top card of the deck can also be played.
Every card played into the layout requires 2 cards played back out, so a pile will never hold more than 4 cards. Wins are surprisingly more frequent than you might expect.
