## RULES AND FEATURES

40 Thieves Solitaire is a very challenging solitaire game. It can be compared to a four-suited Spider. The difference is only in the openness of all cards and in the manner of dealing the deck — it is not dealt in all piles at the same time for one card, but simply card-by-card flipped. Otherwise, it is a copy of Spider Solitaire with 4 suits.

As you have already noticed, the description of 40 Thieves Solitaire is based on a comparison with a similar game. This is reasonable in this case, since the analogy is indeed traceable. So, let's go through the rules of solitaire again.

Cards are laid out on the table in the open in 10 columns, 4 in each. There are 2 slots at the top left — this is where the deck is flipped. At the top right, there are 8 slots (bases) for storing sorted maps. They should be placed here, starting with the ace. Thus, 40 cards are used in the solitaire layout (hence the name: 40 robbers). Another 64 sheets remain in the deck and are taken from there as needed when disassembling solitaire.

The player's task is to sort cards by suit and rank, starting with ace and ending with king, and stack them in the base slots. Thus, a total of 104 cards are used in the game, that is, 2 standard decks of 52 sheets each.

Separately, you should tell us about the rules for rearranging cards in these 10 sorting piles. They're draconian. Even tougher than in Spider Man. You can only take the top card of the pack. You can only transfer a card of the same suit and one rank lower. That is, you can only put a peak seven on the top eight! A sequence, even an ordered one, cannot be transferred to another bundle! How do you like these restrictions?

The question arises, is it possible to at least theoretically disassemble this solitaire? Yes, the calculations say that in some cases solitaire converges. The probability is extremely low, though. We recommend evaluating the layout before parsing it. If there are aces, 2s and threes in the sorting piles, we recommend starting a new hand, because with such severe restrictions, it will be almost impossible to get these cards from there.
