Here is a new version of Freecell Solitaire game in which all hands are matching!
Russian name «Soliter»is a calque from English word solitaire, that is, patience. Predecessors of Solitaire (or Freecell Solitaire) are Eight Off patience and Forty Thieves Solitaire (or Napoleon at St. Helena).
Objective of the game is to release four aces and place cards in ascending order in four cells of the house corresponding to four suits: two onto ace, three onto two and so on. By that Solitaire resembles Klondike. At the top right is the «house» – four stacks whereto the player puts aces and the rest of cards in order to win. To the left of the house – four more free cells, that is space for four cards.
How it is possible to move cards in Solitaire:
- It is possible to shift upper card from the column or free cell into another column onto a senior card of a different color (black two onto red three and so on);
- Card may be placed onto one of free cells to the left of the house; only one card can be put in one cell;
- Any card may be placed in an empty column, with no limitations. Cards are placed on top of it according to general rules, i.e. with alternating colors and according to seniority;
- Cards may be shifted to the house starting from the ace and ending with the king, of the same suit and in the ascending order (two onto ace, three onto two and so on, until four stacks are formed).
If the player needs to shift a stack of cards in the process of game, it may be done so only if enough amount of free cells or empty columns is available. For example, to shift a stack of two cards, at least one free cell or one empty column should be available.

- Hand rating (rating 1:38) — average time spent by all players to solve this hand, the number of players who solved the hand out of the number of the players who attempted to solve it;

- Total time spent on all attempts (total time 4:30).
