Alhambra is a solitaire card game which is played using two decks of playing cards. Its unusual feature is akin to that of Crazy Quilt: the cards in the reserve are built either on the foundations or on a waste pile.
There are 8 Foundation piles. 4 of these start with Aces and build up in suit. The other 4 start with Kings and build down in suit.
Alhambra also has 8 Reserve Piles. These piles contain 4 cards each.
The top cards of the reserve piles are available only to be built on the foundation; there is no building. The cards on the wastepile can be built on the foundations, while it can be built upon by cards from the reserve piles.
