Taking a standard 52-card deck of playing cards (without Jokers), deal one upturned card on the left of your playing area, then six downturned cards (from left to right). On top of the downturned cards, deal an upturned card on the left-most downturned pile, and downturned cards on the rest until all piles have an upturned card.
Tableau piles are built down by alternating colors. Foundations are built up by suit. Empty columns may be filled only by a king.
There are four ways to play Klondike. The game can be played old-styled one card at a time with unlimited redeals, using Gold Rush rules (with 2 redeals), by threes (also with unlimited redeals), or Vegas-style (no redeals).
Gold Rush works differently in that the cards are initially turned over three at a time, but this decreases to two at a time on the second pass, and one at a time on the third and final pass.
