FreeCell solitaire rules (1 deck of cards)<< Fourteen Out | Frog >>

Goal: Move out the aces when you can and build them up to king in the same suit.

The 4 cells can hold one card each, used to help move cards around.

Build the 8 piles of the layout down in alternating suit color. Empty piles can be filled with any card.

You can only move one card at a time. Each empty pile in the layout doubles the number of cards you can move, since multiple moves would allow it, plus an additional card for every empty cell.

Variation of: Baker's Game

Difference: The layout is built by alternating suit color rather than matching suits, raising the odds of winning.

Paul Alfille invented this variation in 1978 for the PLATO educational computer system, using the TUTOR programming language.

Microsoft made FreeCell popular when they began shipping their own rendition with Windows.
