Free Cell solitaire rules


Play all cards into the foundation piles.

Foundation Piles

The 4 foundation piles are built upward in suit from Aces to Kings.

Tableau Columns

  • The 8 tableau columns are built downward in alternating color.
  • Uncovered end cards are available for play.
  • Any card may be played into an empty tableau space.
  • As a shortcut, downward, in-suit card sequences can be moved within the tableau if there are enough empty spaces to hold the cards if they were moved individually.

Reserve Spaces

The 4 reserve spaces can each hold 1 card. Any card may be played into an empty reserve space.


Every card played into the foundations will score.
