Your FreeCell Solitaire cards can also be moved between columns so long as they alternate in color and run from highest to lowest.
Why is it called FreeCell Solitaire, you may be asking? Well, that is thanks to the four free cells at the top left of the page which allow you to place any card on them. The cards placed here can then be moved to an appropriate area, but the use of the free cells is critical to discovering new cards and moving existing ones. Your FreeCell Solitaire score will improve based upon the time you take to complete the game and the number of moves you use.
