Napoleon at St. Helena

Cards--Two packs shuffled together.
Tableau--Ten piles of four cards each, dealt by rows, all face up. Cards should overlap so that the player can see them all.
Foundation-- All aces, place above the tableau as each is released from it or turned from the stock.
Building--Only the uppermost card of a pile may be moved. Removal of a card releases the one below. A card may be placed only on another of the same suit and next-higher rank. Example: 7 of spades may only be placed on the 8 of spades. A king may not be built on an ace; aces must be placed as foundations as soon as possible. Foundations are built up in suit and sequence, from ace to king.
Object-- To get all eight foundations built up the king.
Spaces--When any of the ten tableau piles is entirely cleared away, any movable card may be placed in the space.
Stock--Cards are turned up one at a time from the top of the stock and may be built on tableau or foundations.
Talon--Stock cards which cannot be built are placed face up in a pile below the tableau. The top card of the talon is always available for building onto the tableau or foundations. It is best to overlap the talon cards so that all may be seen.
