3.65.2. Goal

Create four piles of thirteen cards each, each pile consisting of one suit and in rank order.

3.65.3. Rules

Cards in the Tableau are built down by suit. Groups of cards can be moved regardless of sequence. An empty pile in the Tableau can be filled with a King or a group of cards with a King on the bottom.

At any point, clicking on the Stock will deal the last three cards, one each on the first three piles.

3.65.4. Scoring

Maximum possible score: 100

Unknotting knots is not often easy. Avoid tangling yourself up with no way out.
