The Spark solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< The Fort | Thieves of Egypt >>
Goal: All 8 kings are set out. Build them down to ace in same suit.
Build the 12 piles of the layout up in the same suit. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles can be filled from either of the 2 waste piles.
Turn over 3 cards at a time from the deck, alternating between 2 waste piles. The top card of both waste piles are available for play.
Aside from the standard layout, this is like an inverted version of Busy Aces, with the foundation piles building down and the layout building up.
There are some more differences though. The foundation piles are each dealt a card to get started, the deck turns over 3 cards at a time, and there are 2 waste piles. It's quite a unique game.
