How to Play Inverted Freecell

Game Objective

Move all cards to the four foundations.

Foundation Rules

  • There are four foundations.
  • A King may move to an empty foundation.
  • The foundations build down by the same suit.
  • For example the 7♠ may move onto the 8♠ and the 7♥ may move onto the 8♥. Starting with the 7♥ the following sequence can build on top 6♥ 5♥ 4♥ 3♥.

Cell Rules

  • There are four cells.
  • Any card may fill an empty space.
  • The top card is movable.

Tableau Rules

  • There are eight tableaus.
  • Any card may fill an empty space.
  • The tableaus build up by alternating colors.
  • For example the 4♠ may move onto the 3♦ and the 4♦ may move onto the 3♣. Starting with the 4♦ the following sequence can build on top 5♠ 6♥ 7♣.
  • Any card may move to an empty tableau.
  • Sequences of cards built up by alternating color can move together as a group.

Strategy & Tips

Even though almost every game is winnable (99%) use these 3 tips for the best chance of beating each game:

  1. Keep the four free cells, free where possible. They are used to help move the large stacks of cards.
  2. An empty tableau doubles the number of cards you can move between tableaus.
  3. Any single card may be moved to a free cell space.
