The aim of Crescent Solitaire is to move all cards to the eight foundation piles. The game is played using two standard 52-card decks. Four foundation piles are to be built up from Ace to King while the remaining four foundation piles are to be built down from King to Ace.
FOUNDATION - At the begining four foundation piles are dealt Aces of four different suits and remaining four foundation piles are dealt Kings of four different suits.
CRESCENT/TABLEAU - After dealing cards to the foundation piles remaining 96 cards are dealt in 16 piles of 6 cards each which are arranged in such a way to resemble a crescent. Only top card of each of the 16 crescent (or tableau) piles is available for play.
The game is won once all cards are moved onto the foundation piles.
