Wheatsheaf solitaire rules (2 decks of cards)<< Wheat-Ear | Westcliff >>
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.
Build the 8 piles of the layout up or down in the same suit. Aces and kings can play onto each other. Only the top card of a pile may be moved. Empty piles are filled from the deck.
Turn over 1 card at a time from the deck, playing the top card to other piles when you can.
Variation of: Congress
Difference: 4 of the foundation piles start with a king instead of an ace, and build down. The first card of each foundation pile is dealt. The layout can be built both up and down, but in the same suit rather than any suit.
Don't be too quick to move cards into the layout if it changes direction. You could end up making it difficult to release buried cards.
