rules and basics
Create four stacks of 13 cards, one per suit in each of the four home cells. Each stack must be built from the low card (ace) to the high (king).
FreeCell is played with a single deck of 52 cards, dealt face up into eight columns. You'll draw from these columns to build your four stacks:
In the upper-left corner are four free cells, where you temporarily store cards during play.
In the upper-right corner are four home cells, where you build the stacks needed to win.
How to play
Draw cards from the bottom of each column and move them in the following ways:
From column to free cell. Only one card can occupy each free cell at a time.
From column to column (or free cell to column). Cards must be placed on a column in descending sequential order, and alternating red and black.
From column to home cell. Each stack must consist of a single suit, and start with an ace.
