1 Deck.  Medium (45%).   Mostly Skill.

 

Object

To move all the cards to the foundations.

 

Layout

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

 

7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down in suit.  Move groups of cards regardless of any sequence.  Fill spaces with Kings or groups of cards headed by a King.  At the start of the game 1 card is dealt the first pile, 2 cards to the 2nd pile, and so on.  The top card is face up.  Then 4 additional face up cards are dealt to the 2nd through 7th piles.

 

2 cells (top left) - storage locations for cards.  Only 1 card allowed in each cell.

 

Options

AutoPlay

 

Notes

Any face up card in the tableau may be built upon another, no matter how deep it is in a pile.  All cards covering it are moved together.  When a face down card is uncovered, it is automatically turned face up and is available for play.

 

History

Russian Cell is a variation of Russian Solitaire invented by Thomas Warfield.  The addition of 2 cells to Russian Solitaire makes a difficult game slightly easier.
