From the creator of Sage Solitaire, comes a new Solitaire variant that breaks all the rules!
Like its footwear namesake — Flipflop Solitaire is unrestrictive, creating a new game for fans of spider, klondike and other traditional Solitaires.
In Flipflop you can stack down, up, or even both ways on a single stack!
Need to stack an 8 on a 7, or a club on a spade? No problem!
- but -
Be careful, you can only move a stack of a single suit!
It's fun and freeing, but still challenging and captivating.
It's Flipflops for your brain.

------A WORD FROM THE DEVELOPER
Flipflop Solitaire is sort of a sequel to Sage Solitaire in the sense that it's my second crack at the design problem of making a Solitaire game that feels like it was designed for your phone and not for a table.
To be honest this is how I wish everyone approached sequels. Usually a sequel takes the solution to a problem and duplicates it. This is why our expectations of game sequels are often more-of-the-same-but-better. I'd rather see more sequels that brought a renewed level of surprise and novelty, and I'm hoping that's what you find in Flipflop Solitaire.
While Sage was all about trying to capture the feeling of a tight, easy to play, tough to win, zen solitaire game, Flipflop is about knots.
In a typical Solitaire game, like Klondike, you're taking a knot of cards and untying it into sequences. Then you reverse those sequences into clean ordered stacks.
In Flipflop you take your knot of cards and tie it into other, hopefully better knots. Then you untie those knots into the final ordered stacks. Having so much control over the way your intermediary knots are constructed led to a lot more depth than I expected.
I hope you enjoy this game as much as I've enjoyed discovering it.
What's New in Version 1.0.4
- small bug fixes
A brilliant Zach Gage title with loads of strategy. Infinitely and compulsively playable. Download and then give this man your $3. I know, it’s a lot to ask! ;)
A couple of thoughts:
-somehow drains battery rapidly on this particular 6+!
-in Sage Solitaire, you could “earn” trashes. It would be wonderfully helpful to somehow “earn” a slot in which you could put that ONE card that seems to be ruining your chances of progression. Perhaps you could put it next to where the two “random” cards appear at the beginning. Perhaps there would be a score penalty for each turn that the card is left unused in this slot. Just an idea!
Perfect iOS Game
Exactly what one wants in an iOS game - easily played with one hand, high replay value, easy to pick up and learn, but tough to master. Highly recommend even if you aren’t a solitaire aficionado.
I love updates, don’t be sorry for making them! Keep em coming
