Martha solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Maria | Maze >>
Goal: All 4 aces are set out. Build them up to king in the same suit.
The 12 piles of the layout are dealt 4 cards each, face down, face up, face down, and face up.
Build the 12 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. You can move a group of cards if they match the build sequence, but empty piles can only be filled by a single card.
David Parlett refers to this game as "a suitably relaxing little game to play after a hard day's work".
