MORE FUN WITH SOLITAIRE:

Solitaire (also known as Patience or Klondike) is a game my mother taught me at a young age and it has stuck with me ever since. It is one of my strongest, positive bonding moments with her, sitting side by side, her helping me figure out what to do next.


WINNING SOLITAIRE:

Using my logical brain, I have analyzed hundreds of turns but only beat the game a handful of times. Because my winning percentage is quite low, it is such a rush whenever I do win. Often times, the card I was looking for would be stuck, buried in one of the piles I had no access to.

Which meant the game ended there. But that only encouraged me to play a second game and a third. That is not a problem when the game is such a fun, easy to set-up game.

Give it a try and you will most likely find yourself focused on the game, free from thoughts of your daily life. This game has always been a great, healthy form of relaxation and escapism . . .

ALL ABOUT SOLITAIRE:

I would look at every third card in the remaining deck and just hope I get something I needed. Sometimes, I would get just the right card while other times I would get that pesky second and third Queen or Jack that I just could not use.


FUN WITH SOLITAIRE:

But even then, the game tested my brain by having me analyze the playing field each and every turn.

As an adult who loves logic and strategy games, looking back some twenty plus years after learning how to play Solitaire, I think that is why I was originally drawn-in . . .

SUPER ENGAGING SOLITAIRE:

The game itself is engaging as well, matching cards of alternating colors and by suit order to eventually have all cards out on the table. Then it is time to move all of the cards onto four piles placed aside by suit type and order starting from Ace to King.


FUN WITH SOLITAIRE:

It’s a simple game, but remembering the suit order was the part my child self needed the most help with.

 Once I understood the King-Queen-Jack hierarchy, the rest was smooth sailing . . .

FUN WITH SOLITAIRE:

Starting the game was easy enough; it was always a fun, simple joy that still resonates with me today.

I would grab my mom’s deck and stack cards to set up the game—one card must be placed face up then six face down in six separate piles next to it, then another card is placed face up on the second pile and five face down on the remaining five piles.

I repeated this until all seven piles had face up cards with the remaining deck in my hands. For some reason, setting up Solitaire is such a calming and fun experience . . .
