Game Overview: Fanatic
Game Set: TRIPLICARDS Volume One
Type: A TRIPLICARD game. A
Summary: Fanatic, a smarter cousin of the conventional game Shamrocks, is a skillful solitaire involving three-card fans.
Playing Time: 5-10 minutes.
Object: To complete nine towers [orderly piles], each containing a single family of six cards arranged in ascending order (Ace to Six).
Deck: The common pack of 54 TRIPLICARDS, ranked Ace [A], Two , Three , Four , Five , Six .
Layout: All of the cards are dealt, face up, into a layout comprising 19 fans and a vacancy. (A fan is a cluster of three cards, horizontally overlapped; a vacancy is an empty space - essentially an empty fan - with special properties.)
Foundations: There are nine foundations [tower bases], one for each family.
Play: In the fans, build down in color or up in suit; in the foundation row, build towers up by family.
Quirky Rule #1: A fan can hold no more than three cards.
Quirky Rule #2: A vacancy can be filled (once), but an emptied fan stays empty.
