Seven by Seven Alt is a one deck game of the FreeCell type. It is a variation of the game Seven by Seven.
Seven by Seven Alt begins by dealing seven cards to each of seven tableau piles. All of the cards are face up. The remaining three cards in the deck are dealt one each to three cells.
The object is to build four foundation piles up in suit from the Aces to Kings. The tableau piles are built down by alternate color. There is no group moving, except if there are enough empty cells that the cards could be moved individually, then if the group is in sequence down by alternate color, it may be moved as a unit. This is like FreeCell. The cards in the cells are available for play on the foundations or tableau.
When all play comes to a standstill, there is a redeal. The cards are picked up starting with the rightmost pile moving to the left, with the cards in the cells picked up last. The cards are then redealt out to the tableau a row at a time, starting with the cards that were in the cells, then the cards that were in the leftmost tableau pile, ending with the cards that were in the rightmost tableau pile. The last 3 cards are dealt to the cells. The result is that cards that were in the cells or on the left side end up buried deepest in the piles, while the cards that were on the right side end up on top of the piles. There are two redeals.
The game Seven by Seven is exactly the same as Seven by Seven Alt, except that in Seven by Seven the tableau is built up or down by suit. The difficulty is about the same, but Seven by Seven Alt will feel easier to players familiar with FreeCell.
