|Type of Deck||Standard Deck|
|Stock||Top left pile. The rest of the deck is placed here after dealing on to the Tableau. Cards are turned over one at a time to Waste. No redeals.|
|Waste||To be taken from Stock.|
|Tableau||Deal face down seven overlapping rows starting with one card on the first row, increasing by one per row and staggering the piles as to achieve a pyramid. Flip bottom row.|
Move all cards to Waste.
All exposed cards in the pyramid are available for play. Build on to the Waste from these available cards whenever possible by playing a card with a rank immediately above or immediately below the rank of the top card in the Waste. Aces are both above Kings and below Deuces.
Cards can be flipped singly from the Stock to the Waste. There is no redeal.
Each card removed from the pyramid scores one point.
Maximum possible score: 28
Every pyramid needs a strong foundation. Get rid of the lower cards first, with an eye out to try to expose as many cards as possible.
