Cards in Freecell are organized in to eight tableau piles (T), four foundation piles (A) and four free cells (C), as shown in figure 3. At the beginning of the game, a deck of cards is dealt in to the eight tableau piles. The objective of the game is to move the cards from tableau piles to the four foundation piles at the upper right corner. The cards in foundation piles must be built in suit from ace to king (A-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-J-Q-K).
To move cards in to the foundation piles, you must use tableau piles and free cells to you rearrange the cards. However, only a single card can be placed to a free cell at one time. Moreover, a card can be placed on the top of a tableau pile if only the card extends a sequence of altering color and decreasing value.
Only the exposed cards are available for play. However, blocks of cards can be moved at once if there are enough free cells or tableau spaces available to move the cards one by one.
