Vamana

Dashavatara Ganjifa type. One deck. Unlimited redeals.

Object

Move all cards to the foundations.

Quick description

Play is similar to Klondike. The rows build down by rank in "alternate" colors.

Rules

The cards on the tableau build down in rank in alternate colors. The Dashavatara Ganjifa deck has ten suits and each suit has it's own color. This makes it a bit problematic at times knowing which colors are alternate. If a card of one suit doesn't play in a spot, try a different card of the same rank. The foundations build up in rank by suit starting with the Ace. The cards are dealt from the talon three at a time. There are unlimited redeals. Only Mirs (Kings) may be played on an empty row. Cards may not be played from the foundations.

Strategy

The waste stack will be the biggest problem area. Move cards on the tableau to free up spots for cards on the waste stack.
