The goal of Free Cell Solitaire is to remove all the cards into the «house» by sorting them by suit.
The main feature of the game that distinguishes it from other solitaire games is that all the cards are initially open to the player, and he has a complete picture of the state of the playing field. Because of this, the influence of luck on the outcome decreases in the game; according to statistics, even in the most difficult version of solitaire, more than 99% of the layouts are allowed.
How to play FreeCell Solitaire
The rules of this solitaire are simple:
Cards can be moved between columns, correlating by decreasing seniority and alternating suits;
interfering cards can be transferred to empty cells;
The goal of the game is to move all the cards to the “house”.
The main difficulty lies in the fact that you can not always move the cards.
The basic rule is as follows: you can move as many cards as there are empty cells, including free ones and those that have been released on the field (but not less than one). That is, if all the cells are occupied, you can transfer 1 card; if 3 empty cells are free, then a maximum of 4 cards.
Each free cell is intended only for one card — unlike empty cells on the field and “at home”, it is impossible to put cards in them by seniority.
The game is played on the score — 5 points are added for each card removed to the “house”. At the end of the game, a bonus is awarded for the remaining time, so in order to set a record, you need to play solitaire as quickly as possible. There are no penalties in the game. All control in the game is carried out with the mouse. The cards between the columns need to be moved manually; double-clicking on the top card moves it either to an empty cell or to the “house”, if possible.
