The objective of Simple Simon is to build all four suits up from Ace to King using a standard 52- card deck. You have 10 tableau piles. 8 cards are dealt face up to the first 3 piles. 7 cards are dealt with the 4th pile and so on. 1 card is dealt with the last pile.
The top cards of the tableau piles are available to play. You may build tableau piles down regardless of suit, ending at the Ace. You cannot build a King on an Ace. One card at a time can be moved from pile to pile. Groups of cards in sequence downwards in suit may be moved as a unit.
When any tableaus are empty you can fill the space with any card or group of cards.
