Imperial Trumps

Tarock type. 1 deck. Unlimited redeals.

Object

Move all cards to the foundations.

Rules

This game is similar to Klondike except the twenty-two trump cards will play on any suit card of the next higher rank. Cards will play on the foundation only if the trump card of equal rank is played first. That means the Ace of Spades won't play on the Spade foundation until the Ace of Trumps is played on the Trump foundation. Only Kings or the highest ranked Trump can be played on an empty row stack. The highest Trump is called either the Fool or the Skiz depending on the type of deck. It has either the number 0 or is not numbered. Cards can be played from the foundations to the tableau.

Strategy

Skillful tableau play with the trumps can make all the difference in this game. You can move a trump from a red card to a black card of the same rank. This will open the red card for a black one of the next lower rank.
