IN all essential principles, this game is identical with "The Harp," Game No. XXV (q.v.). It is played, however, with one pack instead of two, and seven columns are dealt out instead of nine. 

The rubbish-heap in this form of the game cannot be re-dealt. If two kings are rivals for the same space (resulting from the clearing of a column), you are allowed to look at the card below each, to see which king it will be more advantageous to move, but a card once put into place may not be removed again. It is a game which seldom comes out, as the only grace given is the taking of one card from the bottom of the rubbish-heap, when the game is blocked. This grace may set the game going again, after it has come to a standstill.
