Canfield Games

Canfield Rush
A Canfield variant where cards are dealt by threes in the first pass, by twos in the second and one-at-a-time in the last. Easier than standard Canfield, but still a challenging game.
A difficult variation of Canfield where you build in suit, can't move sequences, and only get two passes through the stock. "Acme," the greek word for the zenith, was a popular name for companies who wanted to be listed first in the phone book until the Coyote and Roadrunner ruined it.
Canfield (Gallery Mode)
This is just Canfield with a different user "interface": all the cards that would normally start in the stock are fanned out face up, with the ones that would normally be playable if you were going through the stock three at a time automatically raised up to indicate that they are playable.
In case Canfield wasn't hard enough for you, here's a version with only three tableau piles. But you can stack cards regardless of suit, so it'll be OK. Occasionally.
