Relaxed Katrina's Game

Tarock game type. 2 decks. 1 redeal.

Object

Move all cards to the Foundations.

Quick description

Similar to Lara's Game with twenty two rows and one redeal, using the Tarock deck. This is the same as Katrina's Game with a reserve stack.

Rules

Refer to the description of the deal in Lara's Game. The differences are that the cards are dealt to twenty three piles instead of fourteen and if a dealt card is of rank Page or over one card is dealt to the talon. Otherwise the dealing rules are the same.

Play is the same as Lara's Game with two exceptions. The first exception is that there is one redeal. When the talon is empty after the first round the cards are gathered up from the tableau and dealt to the rows without being shuffled using the same dealing rules as in the first round.

The other exception is the reserve stack just to the right of the foundations. This stack will take any two cards from any of the rows. Once played there however, a card may not be removed except by playing it to a foundation.

Strategy

If two row cards will play on the same foundation pick the card that is on the row that holds the most cards. Move cards from one set of foundations to the other to get extra plays.
