Eight legions

Mughal Ganjifa type. One deck. No redeal.

Object

Arrange all cards in suit and rank order on the tableau.

Quick description

The cards build down by rank only on the tableau. The ten reserve stacks hold one card each. The game is won when all cards are on the tableau in suit and rank order.

Rules

The game begins with five cards on each of the twelve rows and the ten reserve stacks empty. Cards are dealt from the talon twelve at a time, one to each row. Rows can be built with cards of any suit in descending rank. Only Mirs can be played on an empty row. All twelve suits must be in descending rank order for the game to be won.

Strategy

Make as many plays as possible without filling too many reserves before taking another deal. Put a priority on getting the Mirs and Wazirs in place.
