Full Answer

This initial array deals out the first 28 cards in an arrangement called a tableau. The remaining 24 cards form the draw pile. When an ace shows up, it is placed above the tableau. Each ace starts another pile, called a foundation. The game proceeds as cards within the draw pile are added to the tableau or foundations.
