Double FreeCell is a 2 player version of the classic game FreeCell, but with a twist. You can play against the computer, online, with almost full screen, quick right click move and unlimited undo. It is the perfect way to play FreeCell now! It also works great for those who like to challenge themselves and don’t want to be challenged by real people. The rules of the game stay the same, but because it is played digitally, you do not have to worry about touching the board or worrying that your fingers are too large to fit into the buttons, which makes this version so much better than the traditional FreeCell.
In the first turn, you take your time selecting your seven free cells that you have gotten on each of your starting seven boards. On your turn, you may place any cell on the bottom of your board, but on your first frozen gems turn, only the five on the top right corner are available. Once all the other tiles are placed, the five on the top right corner form a cross shape that forms an ‘x’. You may change your strategy after this point, if you wish.
For the first game, I recommend a strategy that involves using the two best four foundation piles and the double freecell pile. First, place any cell on the board and then, after rolling for that cell, place the cell on the bottom of the board as your starting point. Next, place any other four cell on the board in the same way, except that you must place them on the board starting with the leftmost four. Now, from this starting position, you must carefully and secretly search your opponent’s tableau piles to see which four cell are empty. After you have found your opponent’s ’empty’ foundation pile, place your starting point and your winning tile at the appropriate place on your board (since the starting point is the empty spot on your opponent’s tableau). When you are ready to do the whole thing again, change your starting point, remove the empty cells and add the winning tiles in the same way.
