Freecell solitaire is not like other solitaires. You need no luck to win, only skill is required. All cards are open from the start & the deal has the solution. You can win nearly all of the 4 million possible deals in this game, so think & move wisely.

• Drag and drop to move
• Fast gameplay
• Undo move
• Quickly show and hide application
• Turn sound on and off
• Retina ready
• Make app open on startup

• One standard 52-card deck is used.
• There are four open cells and four open foundations. Some alternate rules use between one to ten cells.
• Cards are dealt into eight cascades, four of which comprise seven cards and four of which comprise six. Some alternate rules will use between four to ten cascades.

• The top card of each cascade begins a tableau.
• Tableaux must be built down by alternating colors.
• Foundations are built up by suit.

• Any cell card or top card of any cascade may be moved to build on a tableau, or moved to an empty cell, an empty cascade, or its foundation.
• Complete or partial tableaus may be moved to build on existing tableaus, or moved to empty cascades, by recursively placing and removing cards through intermediate locations. While computer implementations often show this motion, players using physical decks typically move the tableau at once.

• The game is won after all cards are moved to their foundation piles.

Version 3.6.5

Fun and addicting - This is a great version of Free Cell. The only problem I’ve had with it is that sometimes, at the very beginning of a game, the cards “overlap” each other in the far left column, and I have to click “Restart” several times to get it to not do that. I’m sure that will be fixed. Fun to play.

sneaky money maker - Once you play a few rounds you will be forced to pay $4.99 or wait 15 minutes in order to play. Total used car sales approach.

Keeps crashing! - I’ve had this app before and I loved it, however after installing my new hard drive and downloading, I found that once you complete a game, instead of letting you start a new one, it closes down. If you want to play another round, you have to reopen the app. Not good!

Review by eddyef

Fun and Addictive - For the most part this is a flawless game. Sometimes the cards in the left most column come out of alignment and you have to slide the bottom one down to see what the next card is. Minor issue but not insurmountable. Otherwise, definitely enjoyable and good automatic card movement when appropriate

Version 3.8.1
Review by Nelsonjh-Jr

Dangerous attachments? - I uninstalled this. When I played it, it seems that I would always get an “warning” from a website that “whatis” tells me was in Panama, claiming the last site I visited put 3 viruses on my Mac and showing a screen that mimicked an Apple site with an “antivirus” download and text demanding I that download and run it. I have a legitimate antivirus on my Mac which didn’t find anything. Am I certain that this program caused the problem? No, I’m not certain, but since I unistalled it and ran a cleaner, the “warning" hasn’t reappeared.

Version 3.8.1
Review by dfishocc

Does not seem to like OS High Sierra - I’ve been playing this for a number of years. Every once in a while, a Mac OS update causes some trouble. I just installed OS High Sierra, and ever since then, The app crashes at the end of a complete game. Has anybody else encountered that? I am able to launch the app again to continue playing. I can pinpoint the start of this “problem” to the time I updated the OS to High Sierra.
