First, 13 cards are dealt face down as one pile. They will act as the "trunk" of the eagle, i. e. the reserve. Then, four cards are dealt each to the left and right of the trunk (eight cards in all). They act as the "wings" of the eagle, i. e. the tableau. After these 21 cards are dealt, a twenty-second card is placed above the "eagle. " This is the base of the first foundation and the three other foundations must start with cards with the same rank.
