The objective of big freecell solitaire is to build the eight foundation piles from ace to king in suit.

Game Play

Aces are moved above the tableau to form a foundation pile when they become available. To add a card to a foundation pile it must be one rank higher and of the same suit. Foundation piles may only have thirteen cards each and are complete once the king is added.

The top card of each tableau pile is available for play onto another tableau pile, a foundation pile, or a cell. Tableau piles are built down in sequence in alternating colors. To add a card to a tableau pile, it must be one rank lower and of the opposite color as the card it is being placed on top of. Only one card may be moved at a time.

There are eight cells. The top card of each tableau pile may be moved to a cell. Only one card may be in each cell at a time. Cards in a cell may be moved from the cell either to a foundation pile or to any tableau pile. The game is over when there are no more available moves.

To Win

To win big freecell solitaire, all eight foundation piles must be built in sequence from ace to king in suit.
