Tipati

Mughal Ganjifa type. One deck. No redeals.

Object

Move all cards to the foundations.

Quick description

Play is similar to Klondike. The rows build down by rank regardless of suit.

Rules

The cards on the tableau build down by rank. The foundations build up in rank by suit starting with the Ace. Only the Mirs (Kings) may be played on an empty row. Cards are dealt from the talon one at a time. There are no redeals. Cards may not be played from the foundations.

This game is one of a series of games that have names ending in "pati" which transliterates as "lord of". Tipati means "Lord (Highest/Queen) of Women". The names are the names of the suits in a twelve suit Ganjifa deck.

Strategy

Move cards back and forth on the rows to make every play possible. Don't let the waste stack get too deep.
