Queen of Tarot

The ancient wisdom of the cards

Excuse

Tarock type. 1 deck. No redeal.

Object

Move all cards to the foundations.

Rules

Rows build down in rank regardless of suit. Only one card can be moved at a time. Foundations build up in rank by suit. An empty row stack cannot be filled. For this reason the Kings and the highest Trump are dealt to the bottoms of the rows. Cards can be played from the foundations.

Strategy

Uncover low rank cards before building on higher rank cards on top of them. Use cards already on the foundations to assist in moving rows.
