[<< wikibooks] Solitaire card games/Simple Simon
== Rules ==
At the beginning of the play the cards are dealt all facing the player, starting from 3 columns of 8 cards each, and then 7 columns with 7, 6, and so forth cards until 1.
A card can be placed on any card on the top of a column whose rank is greater
than it by one (with no cards that can be placed above an Ace). A sequence of
cards, decrementing in rank and of the same suit, can be moved as one. An
empty column can be filled by any card. A sequence of cards from the king down to
the Ace - all of the same suit - can be moved to the foundations. The object of
the game is to place all four suits in the foundations.


== Strategy ==
A mixed-suit sequence of cards can be moved to a different location, given
enough empty columns or parent cards to place intermediate components and
sub-sequences of cards on. This is similar to FreeCell only with the
individual components of the sequence being the same-suit sub-sequences
rather than individual cards as in FreeCell. Note that some implementations
of Simple Simon, require the player to do all the moving of the individual
components by himself.
