1 Deck.  Medium (50%).  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.

 

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

 

7 tableau piles (below foundations) - build down by alternate color.  Move groups of cards if they are in sequence down by alternate color and if there are enough free cells that the cards could be moved individually.  Spaces can be filled by any card or legal group of cards.  At the start of the game 7 cards are dealt face up to each pile.

 

stock (top left) - clicking redeals the tableau. 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 and ending with the cards that were in the rightmost tableau pile, then 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.  Two redeals.

Notes

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.

 

History

Seven by Seven Alt is a variation of Seven by Seven, where the tableau building is done via the more normal rule of down by alternate color, making it more like a typical FreeCell type game.
