Sly Fox solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Six by Six | Snake >>
Goal: An ace and a king of each suit are set out. Build the aces up to king in the same suit. Build the kings down to ace in the same suit.
A layout of 20 cards is dealt. All 20 cards are available for play onto the ace and king piles. Empty piles are filled from the deck.
When no more moves can be made, take 20 cards from the top of the deck and play them one at a time to any pile in the layout. No other plays can be made until all 20 cards are placed.
Once all 20 cards are placed, you once again play what you can to the ace and king piles. At this point empty piles are no longer filled from the deck.
Continue to play another 20 cards from the deck until it is depleted.
Also known as: Twenty
Dick and Fitzgerald, and George A. Bonaventure play one card at a time from the deck, not batches of 20. They also do not set out aces and kings right away. Their rules match Colorado exactly.
Morehead & Mott-Smith, Alphonse Moyse, Jr., and Sheila Anne Barry allow the cards from the deck to play directly to an ace or king pile, and a new card takes its place.
George F. Hervey and David Parlett describe a game named Twenty that plays the 20 cards from the deck directly to the 20 piles in the layout, without letting you choose where to place them. Michael Johnstone lists the same game under the name Fox.
