The different piles

There are three different types of piles in FreeCell Solitaire. They are:

  • The Free Cells: The four piles in the upper left corner.
  • The Foundations: The four piles in the upper right corner.
  • The Tableau: The eight piles that make up the main table.

The setup

The Tableau piles are numbered from 1 to 8, piles 1-4 start with 7 cards each, piles 5-8 with 6 cards each. The Foundations and Free Cells are empty.

The objective

To win FreeCell, you must get all the cards onto the Foundations. The Foundations are ordered by suit and rank, each Foundation has one suit and you must put the cards onto them in the order Ace 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Jack Queen King. To do that you can use the moves described below:

Allowed moves

  • Move one or more cards from one Tableau pile to another. You can move the top card of a pile on the Tableau onto another Tableau pile, if that pile's top card is one higher than the moved card and in a different color. For example, you could move a red 6 onto a black 7. If the top cards on a Tableau pile are ordered, e.g. you have red 6, black 5, red 4 as the top cards, then you can click the red 6 and move all of them together onto another Tableau pile that has a black 7 as its top card. HOWEVER, there is a limitation to how many ordered cards you can move together. The number of cards you can move together is basically the number of empty free cells and empty tableaus + 1. So, if you have 2 free cells empty you can move 3 cards together. If you have all 4 free cells empty you can move 5 cards. If you have 3 free cells and 4 empty tableaus you can move 8 cards together. Moving many cards together is basically just a convenience the game provides. In the strictest sense you should always move one at a time, but if you have 4 ordered cards and 3 free cells then you could trivially move the top 3 ordered cards to the free cells, then move the fourth card and then move the 3 cards from the free cells back onto the fourth card. So, for convenience the game allows you to move n+1 cards together, where n is the number of free cells.
    If you have an empty Tableau pile then you can move any card there.
  • Move a single card onto a Free Cell. You can always move the top card of any Tableau Pile, Free Cell or Foundation onto a Free Cell if it's empty. Free Cell's can only hold a single card at a time.
  • Move a card from a Free Cell. You can move a card from a Free Cell onto a Foundation if it's in the same suit and one higher than the Foundation's top card. Or you can move a card from a Free Cell onto a Tableau pile if the card is one lower and in a different color than the Tableau pile's top card. E.g. you could move a red 5 from a Free Cell onto a Tableau pile where the current top card was a black 6.
  • You can move a Tableau card onto the Foundations. You can either drag the cards onto the Foundation, or just double click it and then it will go there by itself. When the Free Cells are empty and all cards on the Tableau are arranged in 4 piles and each of the piles has been ordered in descending order with alternating red/black cards then the Tableau will clear itself, since at that point you are guaranteed to win the game.
  • You can Undo as many times as you like. The game offers unlimited undos. Each Undo counts as a new move though, so if you're trying to win the game in as few moves as possible you should be careful about how many undos you use.

Time and Moves

The game counts the moves you make, and measures the time it takes to finish the game, so you can compete against your previous best games if you want. Currently this data is not stored anywhere, in the future I might add some kind of high scores.

About FreeCell

Hi. My name is Einar Egilsson and I made this online verson of FreeCell. FreeCell is the second solitaire game I create, before that I created Klondike (or "classic" solitaire) and I've also made a few card games like Hearts, Spades and Whist.

10 points! How do I get someone going into high school to face reality and stop playing card games? | Yahoo Answers

I don't want to sound rude either, but you need to ask yourself, is this for your benefit or there's and when it comes to respect is it yours or really others. Okay with that being said, it is really simple just let them know, "I need to talk to you about something, I don't want to hurt your feelings, What I am going to say is with the best intentions", then tell them what you think. You already know, 'you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink'. Now if they stop playing card games, what will fill the void, you need to help them with this too, I believe it is very noble …
