Discover The World of Solitaire

Solitaire, a single-player game, is one of the most popular brain-training games in the world. With a history of gameplay spanning centuries, players throughout time have indulged in Solitaire for a break from boredom. When you play Solitaire, you can relax in an almost meditative state yet still experience a satisfying touch of challenge. 

Playing Solitaire can recharge your mind’s batteries much better than watching an episode of the latest reality TV show. The simple layout and minimalistic design are just what you need at the end of an otherwise hectic day. There are no overly stimulating scenarios or heart-racing visuals — just calm.

Welcome to our Solitaire retreat, offering you a seamless experience of playing all the popular game variations in a beautiful space.

Winning Tips and Quirky Tricks

  • Tackle the Tableau First.

    Focus first on revealing face-down cards on your Tableau.

  • Use the Stockpile With Caution.

    Draw cards from the Stockpile only when your Tableau is blocked.

  • Save Building The Foundation For The End.

    When you reveal a face-down card, other cards become important. Moving cards to the Foundation too early may block the use of newly revealed cards.
