Ten Avatars

Dashavatara Ganjifa type. One deck. No redeal.

Object

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

Quick description

The cards may be built down by rank only on the tableau. The twelve 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 ten rows and the twelve reserve stacks empty. Cards are dealt from the talon ten at a time, one to each row. Rows can be built with cards of any suit in descending rank. Only Rajas can be played on an empty row. All ten 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 Rajas and Pradhans in place.
