Decks: Two


Napoleon At St Helena is THE classic Napoleon variant reformed as a Cousin vaient.

In this double deck game, a fair amount of the cards (40) are dealt face-up in the eight tableau piles. Only single cards may be moved, and the building is by suit. You only get one chance at the hand (no rotation back to the had is permitted). Considerable skill is required to know when to allow a card in the hand to get buried and when to avoid clogging up the table with it. A beginner is unlikely to win this game, but a skilled player will occasionally do so.
