From Roger Waters:
This version of Queen of Italy gives 4 cards for the initial choice of foundation and has only 8 tableau columns. With practice Queen of Italy can be won about half the time. Cards in the reserve which could prevent cards underneath from being played are flagged. Cards are marked with colored squares according to whether they can go on the foundations or on or under a tableau card. A table indicates which cards have yet to be dealt as determined from the face-up cards.
