Lower 48 solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Little Windmill | Lucas >>
Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 8 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. 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.
One redeal is allowed, returning the waste pile back to the deck.
Variation of: Forty and Eight (Forty Thieves)
Difference: The layout is built by alternating suit color rather than matching suits.
