I learned this game from my grandfather, and I want wondering if anyone else has seen it before or knows the name of it. I think it is a Yukon variant.
Deck: one deck with no jokers (52 cards).
Deal: The Tableau is filled with 7 piles containing 7 cards each: Moving left to right deal one card face up and 6 face down to form 7 rows. Then, on top of those cards from left to right deal 2 face up and 5 face down. Then from left to right deal 3 face up and 4 face down, so on and so forth until there is a face up card dealt on the rightmost stack. The 3 leftover cards can be played at any time.
Play: same way as standard Yukon, where stacks of cards can be moved around as long as the destination card is opposite suit and one rank higher.
Goal: Build the 4 foundations piles from Aces to Kings.
Any wisdom on this would be much appreciated, thanks!
