Mount Olympus








MOUNT OLYMPUS.

MOUNT OLYMPUS
Two Entire Packs of Cards
RULES

  • The foundations and the battery follow suit.

  • The foundations ascend in alternate sequences; the aces, in odd numbers, 3, 5, 7, etc., till they finish with kings; the twos, in even numbers, 4, 6, 8, etc., till they finish with queens. (Knaves count eleven; queens, twelve.)

  • Cards may be placed on the battery in alternate descending sequence; thus, on a nine place a seven, on the seven, a five, on a queen place a ten, then an eight, and so on.

  • The uppermost cards of the battery are alone available, until their removal releases those beneath.


PLAY
Withdraw from the pack the eight aces and the eight twos, and place them in the form of a pyramid, as in tableau; these are the foundations which ascend in alternate sequence, till they end respectively with kings and queens. (Rules I and II.)
Next deal out nine cards as in tableau, this is called the battery. Suitable cards of the battery may be played on the foundations, and may also be placed on each other in alternate descending sequence. (Rules I, III, and IV.) The unsuitable cards form the talon. Continue to deal out the entire pack, playing on the pyramid, placing cards on the battery, and refilling spaces from pack or talon.
If the game succeeds, the pyramid will be formed of alternate kings and queens.
The talon may be taken up and re-dealt once.
