  • Sequences may turn the corner with Kings building on Aces and Aces building on Kings.
  • When no more cards can be transferred from the tableau to the waste pile, a card from the stock is dealt to the waste pile and building resumes.
  • When the stock is exhausted, and no more building can occur, then the game is over.
