The Chameleon is a one-deck patience. The game is begun by dealing three cards to the tableau. Four foundations are above the tableau. One more card is dealt to the first foundation to determine the starting rank (Nine in Figure). 12 cards are dealt to the reserve pile. The remaining cards form the stock. The waste pile is beside the stock.
The object of Chameleon is to arrange the cards up in suit into four foundations. The cards of the starting rank must be played the first.
You can build tableau columns down regardless of suit. When building tableau piles, you can move more than one card if they constitute a tableau sequence. In Figure, you can move 5 onto 6.
Empty spaces are filled automatically from the reserve. When the reserve is empty, you can fill a space with any card. No redeals of the stock are allowed.
