Bakers Game

Top  Previous  Next

1 Deck.  Medium (20%).  Skill.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

4 foundation piles (top right) - build up in suit from Ace to King.

 

4 cells (top left) - storage locations for cards.  Only 1 card allowed in each cell.  The card is available for play on the foundations or tableau.

 

8 tableau piles (below foundations and cells) - The entire deck is dealt to these 8 piles (7 cards to the first 4 piles, 6 cards to the next 4 piles) .  The piles are built down in suit.  The top card is available for play on the foundations, cells, or another tableau pile.  Move groups of cards if they are in sequence down in suit and if there are enough free cells that the cards could be moved individually.  Fill spaces with any available card (see KingOnly for option).

 

Options

KingOnly   AutoPlay

 

Notes

Note that groups of cards in the tableau can only be moved as a group if there are a sufficient number of empty cells available to store the cards individually.  The ability to move cards as a group is only a shortcut to moving the group one card at a time.

 

Baker's Game is identical to FreeCell except that the tableau is built down in suit rather than down by alternate color.  This makes Baker's Game more challenging.

 

The game number deals #1 to #1000000 are compatible with the games in the standard Windows FreeCell.  For more information about FreeCell type games, see http://www.freecell.org.

 

Tips

Try to keep as many cells empty as possible.

 

History

 

Baker's Game is the original game from which FreeCell and all its variations came.  It is named after the mathematician C.L. Baker.
