Game Play

Foundation piles are built from the ace in ascending order to the king, in suit. To add a card to a foundation pile, it must be one rank higher and of the same suit as the top card of the pile it is being played onto.

As the game progresses, new rows of eight tableau piles will be dealt underneath the previously dealt row. All cards in the first row and last row of the tableau are always available for play, no matter how many rows there are. When there are more than two rows of tableau piles, any card in the tableau that has an empty cell directly above it, or below it, is available for play onto a foundation pile. Empty cells are created when a card in the tableau is played onto a foundation pile. However, if a card is removed from the first tableau row, replace it with the top card of the stock. All cards removed from all other tableau rows create empty cells that are not filled in.

When there are no more available moves the player wants to make, deal a row of eight tableau cells under the previously dealt tableau row. There may only be one card per tableau cell. When the stock is depleted and there are no more moves, the game is over.

To Win

Labyrinth is won if all four ace foundation piles are built in ascending order to the king, in suit. If there are no more moves after the stock is depleted, and the foundation piles are not complete, the game is lost.
