Hints will guide you towards the next player card by sliding it sideways up the screen. The tableau cards will disappear to reduce distractions. The face-up cards stay. You can move the deck around to form a new sequence of cards by moving cards that are already on the tableau to the bottom. Move any of the remaining card to the bottom of the deck. Step the pile of cards that are on the bottom row of the tableau from right to left to form a new sequence. If no one is yet on the pile, you can shuffle the entire deck by sliding a card from the pile to the top of the deck.
A cardís color matches the color on the face-up card. If the first face-up card is blue, the second is pink.
If youíve never played before, you will be given 13 cards - ten cards in the tableau in alternating colors, and three face-up cards in the reserve. You are dealt one card at a time to help you put together sequences of cards in the tableau so that they alternate in color. When all of the cards have been dealt, move any remaining card to the bottom of the deck, then turn over a new card from the top to create a new sequence. The goal is to put all 13 tableau cards to use with no spaces left unfilled.
