Type of Dominoes Used: CARDominoes
Type of Game: One Player Game
Requirements: One set of CARDominoes with Jokers removed.
Objective: The aces and kings are the foundation
CARDominoes, and the aim is to complete entire suits, by laying
CARDominoes, face-up, above and below the Ace and King and building up a
row in suit-sequence onto the aces and building down in suit-sequence
onto the kings. This will ultimately make 4 vertical rows of CARDominoes
in suit-sequence with the Ace and King as the "starter" CARDominoes
near the center of each row. When a suit-sequence row of 13 CARDominoes
is complete, that particular row is finished and play continues until
all four rows are complete in suit-sequence order or until the game is
stalled out and play cannot continue.
Layout: Lay down the four aces vertically, face-up and
side-by-side as the beginning of a top horizontal row of CARDominoes.
Deal nine other CARDominoes, face-up, beside and to the right of the
aces to complete a row of 13 CARDominoes; then deal the rest of the deck
to make three rows of 13 directly below the first row of Aces and its 9
others. All CARDominoes will be face-up. You will now have 4 horizontal
rows of 13 CARDominoes each. In the course of play, and as they become
available, the kings are pulled out and played above their corresponding
aces to make vertical rows above the aces. (King of hearts above the
Ace of hearts, etc.)
Play: Only the bottom CARDomino of each of the 13 columns
on the table is available for play, either onto a foundation or onto
the bottom CARDomino of another column. Building onto the bottom
CARDomino of the columns is in ascending or descending suit sequence as
the player wishes, and he may at any time reverse the order to play onto
another column to continue play. Spaces created in the table are not
filled. It is evidently important to free the kings as soon as possible,
and play them above their Ace of the same suit and to use every
opportunity of building onto them as foundations.
