The goal in freecell solitaire is to move all the cards to the foundation in the top right. You must start each pile with an Ace (there is a foundation slot for each suit). Then place all the other cards in ascending numerical order (with matching suit) on top of the appropriate foundation pile. (E.g. A Spades, 2 Spades, 3 Spades etc).
You may place any individual card in one of the temporary holding holding slots in the top left.
Cards in the layout can only be moved one at a time and when moving must be placed in descending numerical order and with alternating colors (e.g. Red King, Black Queen, Red Jack, Black 10, Red 9). Any individual card can be placed on an empty cell in the layout area.
