How to play Napoleon Solitaire
Napoleon at Saint Helena Solitaire is a 2 deck solitaire card game. The game with 40 cards dealt face up into 10 piles of 4 cards each. The remainder of the cards in the two deck are placed off to the side in a stock pile. The cards from the stock pile may be dealt one at a time whenever the player is stuck and unable to move the cards in the piles. The top card in each pile may be moved between the piles or to the foundations. These cards may be used to build the piles down by suit, or can be used to build the foundations up by suit. There are 8 foundations in Napoleon at Saint Helena, each of which must be built up from Ace to King by suit to win the game. When all the cards in a pile have been removed, a player may start a new pile in it's place with any card he chooses. In the two pass version of this game, the player may reset the stock pile once he has dealt all the cards from it. In the single pass version he may not. The player wins when all 8 foundations have been built up to Kings.
