The game is played with a standard playing deck(52 cards). If you're playing with a real deck of cards, start by removing the jokers or instructional cards and then shuffle the deck thoroughly. All cards are facing up, this adds to a strategic element to the game.
Step 1: The game consists of eight rows, also known as tableaus, four foundations, and four free cells (hint hint.. the name). Start by laying out the cards on the tableau. The first four tableaus consists of seven cards, and the remaining four tableaus have six cards. All cards should be facing up.
Step 2: Make sure that you leave room above the tableaus for the foundations and the free cells. This space will come in handy when playing. The cells allow you to temporarily store cards while playing, more on this to come.
Step 3: The strategy and goal of the game are very similar to many other variations. The goal is to move all cards to the foundations in ascending order, starting from ace and ending with the king. To start off a foundation, you need to move an ace to it.
Step 4: Typically, it's a good idea to move cards to the foundation whenever you can, the only exception would be you needing that card somewhere else in the tableau, it might be best to hold off on moving it.
Step 5: If the opportunity comes up, then you can move a card from one tableau to another. The “pro's” of doing this is that you free up cards below the card you just moved. The card being moved must be one lower and a different color than the card it's being moved to.
Step 6: Once there are no available moves on the tableau, you can move a card to a free cell. Each cell can hold any card but can only hold one at a time. You can move a card back to the tableau or the foundation at any time. The only caveat to using the cells is that it limits how many cards you can move at one time. If you have four empty cells, five cards can be moved at a time. If you have three empty cells, you can move four cards simultaneously and so on. As an aside an empty tableau is counted as an empty cell in this calculation.
Step 7: If you have an empty tableau, you can move any card or sequence of cards to it.
Step 8: Lastly apply all the moves above until you end up with all the cards on the foundation piles, if you can do this, you've won the game!
