Another Busy Aces version by Thomas Warfield, this time half the tabeau is built up and half is built down. The game is medium in difficulty, with a 50% chance of winning. It is played with two decks, and your odds of victory are primarily determined by your skill and luck.

8 foundation piles (vertically on the left and right) - 4 piles on the left build up in suit from Fives to King, wrapping to Ace up to Four. 4 piles on the right build down in suit from the Fives to the Aces, wrapping to the King down to the Six. The Fives are dealt here at the start of the game.
Six tableau piles (across the top) - the first three piles (to the left of the line) build down independent of suit, wrapping from Ace to King as needed. The second and third piles (to the right of the line) stack up independent of suit, wrapping from King to Ace as needed. Only one card can be moved at a time. Any card can be used to fill empty piles. At the start of the game, each pile is dealt one card face up.
Stock (bottom, face down) - click to transfer 1 card to garbage. There are no redeals.
Top card available for play on the foundations or tableau (apart from stock).
Foundation piles are classified into two types.
The Left Foundation
There are four piles in the left foundation. Any five cards may be transferred to any vacant pile in the left foundation. A card may be added to a left foundation pile if it is one higher than the pile's former top card and of any suit. As a result, the only card that might be played on a 2 is a 3. There can be no more than 13 cards in a pile. Cards may be removed from the left foundation.
There are four piles in the right foundation. Any five cards may be transferred to any vacant pile in the right foundation. A card may be added to a right foundation pile if it is one lower than the pile's former top card and of any suit. As a result, the only card that could be played on a K is a Q. There can be no more than 13 cards in a pile. Cards cannot be moved from the correct foundation after they have been placed.
There is one garbage pile and the remaining cards comprise the stock.
When you click on the stock, one card from the stock is dealt to the garbage. There can only be one trip through the stock.
The top card of the trash can be played to the left tableau, right tableau, or foundation.
