Aces Up

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

The objective of Aces Up is to move all suited cards EXCEPT the Ace to the foundation stack.  Check for any cards of the same suit, for example the 3 of diamonds and the 8 of diamonds.  You can move the lower of these two suits to the foundation stack by double clicking the card you want to move. image001

·         Once the 3 of diamonds is in the foundation stack, you can also move the 8 of diamonds to the stack. ·         Once you have no more moves, click on the deal stack to get a new batch of cards.

Continue to eliminate cards of the same suit from lowest to highest rank, keep in mind that you can’t eliminate the Aces.

·         If you have an empty column, you can move any top card to that column provided the move can be made. ·         The best move to make is to get an Ace card to the top of the column. ·         You can only move the Ace card if it is sitting on top of the column, not placed underneath another card. ·         Remember, the object of the game is to move all cards EXCEPT the Aces to the foundation pile.

·         The game is over and you have won if you can get all cards to the foundation pile and have the remaining 4 aces sitting in each column. ·         There is no re-deal in this game, once you have gone through your initial stack of cards, you must play with what you have. ·         You lose if you have more than the 4 Aces remaining on the table.
