How to Play 40 Thieves Solitaire

The goal of 40 Thieves Solitaire is to play all 104 cards onto the eight foundation piles at the top of your screen! Forty of the cards will be put into 10 tableau piles, with the remaining cards going into your stock pile. You are only able to play the top card of each tableau, and the single card that is open in your stock. The tableau piles must be built down by suit from King to Ace and the foundations are built in the opposite direction!
