Yukon Layout

 

Layout

 

Twenty-eight cards dealt in seven tableau piles.
The number of cards per pile increases from one to seven from left to right.
The top card of each pile is face up (exposed), the rest are face down (hidden).
Starting with the second tableau pile, an additional four cards are dealt face up to each.

 

Play

 

Any exposed card, regardless of its position in the tableau, may be built down in value and alternating suit color on the top card of another pile.
The top card of a pile is always available for play on a foundation.
Whenever the exposed cards of a pile are cleared away, the next card is exposed and becomes available for play.
A space made by clearing away an entire pile may be filled by only a King (plus the cards, if any, covering the King).

 

Foundations

 

Move the four Aces to the row above the tableau as they are made available.
Build the foundations in ascending suit sequence from Ace to King.

 

To Win

 

Move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Available Variations:

 

Tap the Settings button to select the "Plus" rules variation. The "Plus" rule allows you to build cards in descending sequence and differing suit in the tableau. This allows for more options of play and increases the chances of winning.

 

Once the "Plus" rule is selected, it cannot be reset until you start a new game. The "Plus" rule statistics are also tracked separately.
