Red and Black (Cadogan) solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Red and Black (Alternate) | Reinforcements >>
Goal: All 8 aces are set out. Build them up to king in the same suit.
Build the 8 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles are filled from the deck.
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.
Also known as: Rouge et Noir
Variation of: Red and Black
Difference: The aces are built upon in the same suit rather than alternating suit color.
This seems like a minor difference, but it changes the game. Only one card at a time can move from the same pile in the layout to the same ace pile.
