History of FreeCell

FreeCell emerged from a variation of the game Baker's Game (not to be confused with the game Baker's Dozen, Baker's Dozen). In Baker's Game the cards must be organized in descending order and with the same suit, while in FreeCell the cards are organized in descending order and with alternating colors.

The game became famous when it was included in Windows 95 and kept in later versions of Microsoft's operating system, being removed in Windows 8. In Windows XP, the game was modified to present a total of 1 million different card distributions (different games).
