Top 10 Tips to Win Freecell

Winning a game of Freecell might involve a player having a good understanding and mastery of the rules of the games. Just as there are hundreds of versions of solitaire card games, there are different rules that govern each of the game settings. In Freecell Solitaire, you finish the game when you can build up the foundations from Ace to King for each suit. Of course, your strategy's adrenaline is rushed when you realize that all the cards are dealt facing up with the empty free cells a little above to serve as holders for cards whose users are not currently expendable during play. Even so, how do you go about making a smooth, successful win? We have put together 10 helpful tips to see you pull through your next game of Freecell Solitaire 

Here are ten tips to help you win your next Freecell game:

1.    Know your goals: It is important to understand the game object. To arrange in an ace to jack fashion from foundation means you have to permute the four cells to contain 13 cards in ascending order as: Ace-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 –Jack-Queen-King Each of the four stacks much house identical suits. 

2.    Start with the Aces: You can start by trying to place the aces on the home-cells first. The idea is this would give you a lucid idea of how to move the cards across the tableau to the home-cells. Remember that the order of arranging each suit involves having the ace at the base.

  3.    Heat the water: Try moving the cards across the columns in the tableau. This would help you locate the next card for a suit. When planning the cards around the column, understand that a card can only be placed on another column of alternate color, i.e., black can only be placed on red and in reverse.

  4.    Use the free cells to your advantage: Learn to utilize your free cell spaces. They can be used to store cards that are in the way of game play.

5.    Packing the cards: Make a sequence of packed cards on the tableau instead of using the free cells. Even out the card spread, so there is enough room to look for chances.

6.    Free the columns: Here's a tip to making a significant move: at the start of the game, try freeing up an entire column. Understand that a free column has more vantage point than a free cell because it can score 5-6 more cards than a Freecell. More so, having a free column puts you off the edge. 

7.    Undo, undo, undo: The undo button is your biggest ally, so remember to always call in for a favor! The undo button can be found just below the tableau. Using the undo button could help prevent you losing a game by reversing a previous move at play. 

8.    Mix well: Be able to move the cards back and forth from the tableau. Also, ensure you do not use up all your free cells on time. You should consider yourself boxed in if you are down to a single free cell.

9.    In England they call it patience: Be patient when you get stuck. Sometimes you may have to wait out a little while, take your mind off the game, get a little distraction then come back refreshed. You should have a new perspective to bail yourself out of trouble. Do not make hurried or impatient decisions that could lead to a reckless move. 

10.     Safety First: There are safe moves that you could commit at the start of the play. For example, you could move out the aces as well as the two(if they are uncovered). Pick out your safe moves and use them to ease the play. Once you have arranged the cards from ace to king for each foundation for the suit of cards, you win!
